Hey guys,

I was doing a bit of 2D motion capture of my friend's face. The process is simply tracking dots on his face, using the puppet pin tool to mark similar spots on a photograph, and then linking them together (pick whip). Unfortunately I'm fairly inept with the puppet pin tool and am having a bit of trouble.

After placing multiple points (16), it will not allow me to place anymore. Instead, it adds the point I want to place but removes the one previously set.

I hope this makes sense and that it can be resolved. I don't know whether it is something I'm doing or a bug? There's probably a setting I have to change. Any ideas? (Thanks in advanced)
