    I am having trouble with selection. Marquee selection also selects sides/edges whatever on the other side of the object (occluded). Now I know this has something to do with Backface Culling, however if I go to Display->Polygons-> Bacface Culling, nothing happens when I click it.

    If you take one of the UI elements (for example the channel editor) and turn it into a window, how do you put it back with the rest of the UI (as in, put it back where it goes in the same window)

    @MGLMORION Make sure you select the object and if you still don't see it, press Ctrl+A couple of times.
