Rhino Version 5 SR8 64-bit
I use Boxedit & Gumball extensively for object manipulation.
I really like Boxedit for its absolute value editing & it is my main tool for technical design.
Just a couple of things that would improve use of this great tool.
1 For Size & Scale editing, it would be useful to lock aspect to another axis, This could be a small button/CheckBox beside the axis label. This would change the selected axis relative to the new value of the edited axis. It should not clutter the form if the button is small.
2 If I edit a size value then change the pivot, the value reverts. I am often forgetting to set pivot first.
other attributes Position & Rotation would change with pivot but not size or Scale.
3 Scale handle has a keep aspect(3d) by holding shft, it would be useful to have a 2d keep aspect, this would be relative to the current view(except perspective?). This could be achieved by holding another key eg: shft + ctrl/alt.
4 Reference point. I can drag an arrow (hold ctrl) to reposition the ref point, but it is difficult to get an absolute position. (eg: edge of object) With Osnap on it depends where I clik on the arrow.
There is a white dot that indicates the reference point, It would be awesome if this could be dragable.
Using the RelocateGumball command/menu is too complicated(for me) for just repositioning, I struggle with using this command.
A simple MoveGumball would be great, where I can just click on a target point & its done.
A good tool will enhance creativity & productivity, rhino does this exceptionally with many of its tools.
