The part where you divide and group the inter hills and moon stuff. Doesnt work. At all. I have followed everything to the T and it doesnt just let me “click the section and delete it.”
Really irritating. Doesnt help you talk at 1000mph.

for some reason the align tool won’t work for me? Like when I click on the align buttons the shape/object just doesn’t move, even though I have the correct object selected. Anyone know why?
