Hi
is there an easy way of keeping track of the vertex count for a model? I use the polygon counter, I was wondering is there something similar for verts? Other than the properies dialog of course. Appreciate any tips.

easy:

select the model and evaluate this code:

$.verts.count

ok, you got me. Do I enter that in the lower left dialogue, the red coloured slot? I never use code in Max 8

The bottom-most left-most textbox of the max window. I think you were in the right place, just the wrong box. You want the white one, not the pinkish one :)

Ok that works. Although it occured to me that I could group the objects and select properties to check the total vert count. Thanks for that tip though.
