    Hello People-who-know-what-they-are-doing.

    After seeing some of the awesome content thats coming out of the community i decided i would open up hammer and give it a shot myself.

    I was following the Getting started guide on the valve developer community and i have already run into my first problem.

    I am at the part where you place the first block and after i put it down it appears as just a wireframe, I see a tip which says:
    "Tip: If your object does not appear textured already, click on the Camera view and go to View > 3D Textured Polygons to view a textured version of your object"

    But when i choose "3D textured polygons" Nothing happens and the block stays as wireframe (I know did click on the camera view)

    Any of you people know what i am doing wrong here?

    EDIT: Nevermind i solved my problem

    That's not being helpful to his (now solved) dilemma, no matter how right it is.
