Inset not available in menu or tools

There's no inset menu inside Mesh > Faces > nor any ctrl+F shortcut (or ways to asign a shortcut to it).

At least it's available on the Search panel (Space).
I think a shortcut icon would be great for that since it's a common used tool.

I also tried with the portable 0.9.5 edition on another computer to be sure it's missing.

Hi Armitage,

Thanks for your report.

We don't have the same menus than Blender. Inset faces is in the tool shelf now. Below the extrude icon.

You can switch the icon buttons to text buttons in the Properties sidebar in the display panel. Then it's a bit easier to find Smile

Closing this task, since there is nothing to fix.

Kind regards

My apologies.

It's at least the fourth or five times that I felt into this kind of misunderstood.

On the other hand, you can read from the Modeling Meshes Manual that Inset is available through the menu or by shortcuts. But I understand that adapting the original Blender manual is a daunting task.

To that purpose I wrote a topic in the forum about what I guess is my personal problem and a suggestion on how it could potentially be addressed.

Of course it is just a suggestion intended to avoid wasting your time on false positives (like I already did twice).

No problem Smile

As written in your forum thread, we aren't finished yet. Some more tools will change its place in the nearer future.

For the manual, this part needs of course a fix. I will have a look at it.

Fixed the manual. Removed the hotkey hint, and changed the menu location hint.
