Mapping Tool button grayed out
« on: November 19, 2012, 12:13:48 pm »
Hi,
The mapping tool was working a few days ago, and now I cannot activate it, since it's grayed out.  I am trying to use it with Box Mapping. I am running version 3.3.33. I have tried opening multiple files, as well as starting a new one - all with the same results.

Any ideas how to get it to work again?

Thanks!

I think I figured it out.

I had to double click on an object in the scene to get to the material editor for that material, then I double clicked on the object with the material I actually wanted to change. One I did that, the material editor tab would allow me to use the Mapping Tool.

Hi,

The mapping tool will only become active for materials with a texture or label applied.  It is possible you have multiple copies of the same material, some with the texture, some without?  Also note that the texture/label thumbnail must be selected/highlighted.
