for some reason I can use almost no options in the selections menu. rectangle selection, freehand selection, polygon selection, loop selection, ring selection, outline selection and fill selection are all greyed out. ive tried starting new projects and just about anything i can think of, it wont give me those options. also, how do i add to a selection? for example, i want to select a few polys from one side of an object and a few polys from another side, but the polys i want to select are not connected. in maya you would just hold shift.
i am using c4d version #9.012
i was able to locate the answer on another forum! sorry!
just had to switch from tweak mode to default mode.
