Dear John,

wow, John Nyquist himself  - what an honour!

I love watching your blender tutorial (I have bought all 4 releases at 
Cartoon....). Thanks, now I really get into Blender. After your tutorial 
I am able to draw scientific objects like microscope  lens etc. for 
educational purposes.

Thank you for point 1. It works fine ( immediately written down in my 

Well the second: Hmmm. I am modelling optics ( microscope objectives) 
with blender for scientific purposes. I really start each lens from 
scratch with one vertice. That is the easiest way to get exact models 
from blueprints. Several of those lens-objects reside in my scene. I can 
not leave with Ctrl-X unfortunately. The best tool would be a 
hotkey-combination + RMB or something like that to get just one vertice.

Best whishes
and again: thanks for those cartoon  tutorials.
