A small request - labling layers function

unhandled

#1

When creating a new layer it shows up highlighted with some ‘layer (#)’ name assigned. Because it’s highlighted I automatically begin typing in a name I want to use and then… I find the command menu showing up on my main window. Then of course I must back up and double click to get into the titling function on the new layer. Why cant a new layer created be ready for a title the first time round instead of requiring the additonal clicking?

I’m afraid I don’t follow this request. When I click the + button in the Layers panel, I can immediately start typing a new name.


#3

Here’s a vid. When I click to make a new layer the name is highlighted but typing takes me to the command dialog box

Thanks for the video. That’s really odd. That’s certainly not what I’m seeing. I have tested this with both Command options in sidebar and Command options dialogs, with the same result. Can you please run ExportPreferences and send along your .plist file?

Thanks @JKayten-

Do you still see this behavior in the latest RhinoWIP or is this a Rhino 5 for Mac issue only?


#7

I’m running version 5.5.3(Mac)

I didn’t know there was a 6 out.

It is not available for purchase yet, but rather in the Work-In-Progress WIP stage. If you have a license of Rhino 5 for Mac, you can access the RhinoWIP for V6.
