Dynamic hair with comic book mode?
I have some older hair styles that look like wire mesh in preview. They render fine in Firefly, but not in Comic Book mode. Am I missing something, or are they simply incompatible with Comic Book mode?

You can click on the hair so it is selected then go to the display mode panel on the lower left corner of the screen. It says "Document display style" if you click on the title there it will show the menu with document style, figure style and element style. Select element style (or figure if the hair is a figure). Then click on the very last icon that when you hover over it says use figure style. It should change that element to whatever the rest of the document is ie texture shaded by default.
p.s. while that works I always go to the file and fix it ie. hr2 pp2 or whatever the file type is. To fix it permanently without re-saving the prop to the library thus making a copy. to do that you just open the file with a text editor. (I use sublime text). then search the document for the word "displayMode" you will then find a line that looks something like this:
change the word "WIREFRAME" to "USEPARENT" all caps, save and reopen in poser. It will now automatically use the document default mode.
@david_macrae Thank you! Did the older hair models default to wire frame to save memory?

My guess would be probably yes. Also when I started seriously learning poser I was recommended this book "Secrets of Figure Creation with Poser 5". Yes it is old but still has invaluable info if you need to open poser files in text editor. Just a great reference. I picked it up used from amazon for less than 5 dollars including shipping.
@david_macrae Good to know. Thank you!
I recommend Practical Poser By Denise Tyler. ;)
You can get it from Amazone.

@Ghostman I bought her Practical Poser 6 back when I was using Poser 5, and I liked it. Just out of curiosity, I should drag that thing down from the top shelf of the bookcase, and look at it again.
@Miss-B yes I have that one too. Still valid for most of the stuff. :)

@Ghostman Hi, I'm a new user of Poser Pro 11...would one of the Practical Poser books help me too and which one should I go for? Many thanks
