Type the GradientView command to toggle it off.

it is rhino 6 - GradientView is not continued
i guess it is a bug

I cannot reproduce. Perhaps you could attach the Shadows_color after you export it to an ini and attach it here?

This is what I tried with Shadows_color.ini (11.3 KB)

You’re mistaken.
GradientView is in V6.
I just checked again.
Type it as a command name
It overrides the current display mode.


(Nathan 'jesterKing' Letwory) #6

GradientView just doesn’t autocomplete.


(John Brock) #7

Correct.
GradientView is a left over proof of concept “test” command from the V5 development phase. When we tried to remove it, enough users liked that it worked as a single toggle command so we were persuaded to leave it in.
As a “test” command, it is hidden, unsupported, and does not autocomplete.

You can set up a gradient view working display mode in V5 and now in V6. That is what the command was intended to figure out; if it was worth pursuing in V5 development.

I thought it was older than that, like V3, before permanent gradient view display modes were available… I’m almost certain it was there in V4 already…


(John Brock) #9

You could be right.
I think it has been a support headache since it was left in.

Get your Grump on!
Ha!


#10

Many people invoke it without realizing it by typing “gr…” and hitting enter when wanting to launch Grasshopper.


(Pascal Golay) #11

This is what I think happens the most often. But if it does not autocomplete by default any more… how did the OP get in this state?

Excellent question…


(Steve Baer) #13

That is pretty much exactly the reason we turned it into a non-auto completing command.
