Mouse buttons in Blend Publisher

Post by zarathustra » Fri Jan 23, 2004 8:45 pm

Hello,
I am trying to follow a text and I have reached a point where I have to create a circle and squish it to an elipse. Unfortunately it reads that I should go out of edit mode, scale accordingly and then pressing both mouse buttons will result in the circle becoming an elipse. I do this but no joy, nothing happens. I am using a mouse with three buttons and a wheel. Please help as I'm rather stuck. Incidentally I have no intention of upgrading my version of blender yet.

regards zara

Hi,
I think the place for that question is at the elysiun board:
http://www.elysiun.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=7

Anyway, I think you can solve your problem by pressing "s" to begin the scaling, then move your mouse in the direction you what it scaled (e.g. up-down or left-right) then hold down the middle mouse button (press the mouse wheel) and continue dragging so that it scales only on one axis and so becomes a stretched circle (an elipse).
If there was a mistake in the book or tutorial I think you should tell the author of it.

The option to emulate the middle mouse button was turned off by mistake in the Blender 2.31 release.

Thank you for the replies. It's now yesterday's problem as I solved it. Turns out is was a question of modes.

Regards Zara....
