I’m afraid I do not understand this.
Would one have to type for instance ‘20mm’ to get current behaviour?
It’s a difficult issue, I understand the use of sliding the scale handle x units. It makes sense from a GUI perspective. However, it being a scale handle I’d expect it to accept scaling factors rather than units.
So there is no obvious solution.
I’m thinking about prefixes like a ‘w’ for world coordinate or < for angle constraints.
However that will hardly be easily discovered.
How about a 2 line input field
The input field pops up anyway. Why not make it a two liner?
Hi Willem - currently, typing “-” or “+” and a number will result in the subtraction or addition of that number of current model units via scaling. You can also be explicit in typing in some other units - what I’m suggesting is that for the addition or subtraction style scaling, the user would be required to enter a unit explicitly, (e.g." -2.05mm")even if current model units are what’s wanted. If the user does not specify a units system then a scale factor is assumed… ?
