Does branching no longer necessary in this version?

Not sure what you mean? On GitHub there is currently a 3.6 branch and a 3.7-beta branch.

I meant branching mesh in Spine Editor. Re-branching the mesh to all points after we add in middle one, I meant.
The yellow lines in picture. Do we have to do it manually or it's automatically now?

You always need to create the orange edge lines manually, but they are optional. You only need the orange lines when the gray lines that Spine creates automatically are not sufficient for your needs. In other words, the orange lines allow you to control how Spine performs triangulation. Please see the Edges documentation here:
Meshes - Spine User Guide: Edges

Some people go crazy and add a bunch of orange lines to their mesh simply because they like how it looks (looking at you, Shiu). However, if you create an orange line over a gray line, the resulting mesh is exactly the same. Well not exactly, the orange lines may make it easier for you to select parts of your mesh, especially if you hold down shift when clicking an edge (for edge loop selection).

Weird, the orange lines doesn't show in my editor. Just update it to 3.6.52.

Did you click a mesh, then the Edit Mesh button, then the Create tool, then drag starting from a mesh vertex?

I did. It's all white lines. No orange. Strange.

From that screen you need to click and drag from any vertex to create manual edges.

Hi tldmstldls, I get your situation only when I open the weights panel, select a mesh that is bound to some bones, but I don't select the Weights tool:


But when I click the Weights tool, they become enabled:


Is it the same for you?

Thank you very much Erikari
Completely resolved!
I should have asked earlier.

We'll make it a bit more intuitive by not disabling the checkboxes, instead clicking them will select the Weights tool. :beer:
