Hey guys,

I'm working through a tutorial and thought that it would be cool to make my points look like this, but have been unable to figure it out yet. I saw somebody else using points like these yesterday, but didn't think to ask them how they did it. Is there a plug-in that I need or something? Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!


Later and Happy Holidays,

Mike


P.S. These points are from Dan Ablan's Inside LW 7 Book.

Have a look under the "Display options" in Modeler. Under the "Interface" tab you will find a "Simple Wireframe Points" option. Tick this and change the size to something a bit bigger than the deafault.
Remember that the points must be selected to show the bright yellow points

have a great day

Thanks a lot, but still not doing what I want it to do. I tried what you said and don't really see what it did - other than allow me make the points bigger or smaller. I was still unable to make them open as in the attached pic. Should I be getting different results?

Happy Holidays, Mike

I opened modeler 7.5 and my points look like that. Maybe they changed for 8 (if that's what you are using)?

I don't have LW here but it looks like points with Simple Points set to off and visibility set to off.

Yeah - I've got LW 8 and I can't get my points to look like this :-(

Hello ChillWill.

I am pretty sure what you are trying to do, is explained by the quote above, by brtk.
