suddenly, the wireframe option under materials tab does not work. i dont get any error. i just go to materials, select new, select wireframe, then color, then drag to selected text. i go to test and its still solid!!!
is there a selection i need to activate it or something? it was working last week.
Be sure you have the material that's actually applied to the object in the same material editor thumbnail when you check the wireframe box. You can double check this by selecting the object and looking at the material set-up window for the object. The material you've applied to the object will be in the material bin(s).
I suspect you may be changing the rendering mode to wireframe for a material that's in the thumbnail by default, rather than the one that's applied to the object. If need be, drag the material over to the editor and click on the wireframe option.
