It's strange now if the modifier stack is not applied, it seems to work


and Normal edit earned.

But it is still not clear why it does not work with the applied modifiers.
And why doesn't it edit vertex normals and node geometries don't have access to them?

@Alexey (pseudoua) It doesn't work when applying the modifiers because you lose the roots. The skin modifier works by taking the radius of the vertex/vertices marked as "root" (circled in red in edit-mode). In your example, after applying all the modifiers you would have to select the bottom 4 vertices and click "Mark Root" in the skin modifier. When not applying the modifiers, then the array modifier will copy the root flag for you.

Can you confirm that marking the vertices as root works?


I can't even apply it.

modifiers are not applied or applied in the wrong direction. I click to apply screw, and in response, a completely different modifier is applied (in this case, array)

@Alexey (pseudoua) that is a different bug in the UI in the alpha atm. Use Ctrl+A while hovering over the modifier to apply in the meantime.

Mark root works as you said, thanks, did not know

@Alexey (pseudoua) Alright. Thank you for confirming. I will close this for now.
Feel free to open a new report if you have any other issues.
