View Full Version : Help! My object is hidden and I can't get at it!
02-04-2005, 07:18 PM
I was in the process of building a model when I accedentally hid and the vertices for one of my object ("H' key) then clicked on another object. I can't click on the lost item now to use the revel command. . . Does anyone know what I need to do. I'm kicking myself because it seems like such an easy thing.
Anyhelp would be awesome,
Mac 10.3.5 OS
Too much free time

The first thing to check would be your layers. You might have put it on a different layer without knowing it.

Did you try to use reveal in editing tab (f9) ?

Yeah, it's definitely gone (As in, not in any other layer). As for the F9 option I'm not sure because my Mac OS uses F9 for something else and it doesn't do it's blender function.
I know the thing is still there because it has a material and an object name still. I just can't select it. . . grrrr. I would think that there might be some way of using the object menu but I sure can find it.
I've spent too much time of this thing to just re-draw it, LOL

Tray Alt+H on Edit Mode

The easiest way would be to open the Outliner view. Go through your objects one by one and any one that you select in the outliner that you can see in your 3D view, move it to a layer you're not using. When you get to one that doesn't seem to get selected, move your mouse over the 3D view, hit tab, and then hit Alt+H. (I think that's the key combo.)
Just to clarify, H and Alt H only work in Edit Mode. There's currently no way to hide objects in Object Mode other than by moving them to different (invisible) layers). Check your layers etc (` to make all layers visible).
