I’ve had Rhino6 for months now. I thought it would be better. Instead, I find that I still do my day-to-day work in Rhino 5. The reason is just one little thing that makes Rhino6 functionally useless to me.
It’s about BoxEdit. I use it a lot, to reposition and resize things. I probably use BoxEdit once every 30 seconds. It’s my main tool. BoxEdit makes me work fast. I should mention too, I use a black background.
Ok, so in Rhino 5, you’d select an object, it would highlight yellow. Say in BoxEdit you reposition it. The yellow highlighted original stays in its original position, and at the same time you can see the object move in its assigned color. For example, if the object was a red line, you will see it as a red line as it moves with your BoxEdit command. So, on a black background you can see what’s going on.
Now, in Rhino 6, you select the object, it highlights as yellow and this stays put as the original object. So far so good. Then you use BoxEdit to reposition it, resize it or whatever. But Rhino6 doesn’t move the object in its assigned color. Instead, it colors the moved object black while BoxEdit is active. So I have absolutely no idea where the object is. I’m using a black background - and the moving object is black. It doesn’t matter if the view is wireframe or shaded, or if the object is a line or a surface. Same problem. I can’t see what I’m doing. It’s useless.
Is there any chance that this could be altered in a future update to Rhino6? The moving BoxEdit object needs to be colored its assigned color, not changed to black. Is that possible, please? Please. I’d really like to use my Rhino6 license. So, McNeel, could you do this? I would be very grateful.
