The other options in this menu are greyed out. Post information on how to make them accessible here.
They've never been greyed for me, anyways since that's missing :
- Check map for error
- Scale Map
- Remove existing particles
- Rotate Actors (I don't really understand how to use that one)
- Review Paths
- Array – like the one in 3ds
- Particle Editor
