COMPLETELY LOST in Blender - The untutorial (part 3 the final mix-up)

Last time, I had found a quiet resting place in the OOP menu which is, alas, not an undo menu. But one cannot hide forever. Time to reenter the dragon-filled wasteland called Blender.

After taking a few minutes to calm down, I decide to continue on my way. I’ve got to go back to the 3D interface. I steel myself, and click the grid icon to change back to 3D.

Rosalyn's COMPLETELY LOST in free software blog

Hey! I got a blog!

Hi everybody. My name is Rosalyn Hunter, and I've been using a GNU/Linux system exclusively since about 2001, so I've used a lot of software that hadn't reached version 1 yet.
