Middle mouse button wish


#1

Would like to click the middle mouse button and have it show a series of icons aka buttons. Right now there is one vertical list of tools with and icon and it spelled out. Want to match up my Windows version with my Mac version. Thanks!

from this thread:

The following Mac-only command will display the PopUp tool palette under the cursor:

_ShowToolPalette _ToolPalette=Popup _UnderCursor=YES _Enter

You can change PopUp to any other tool palette name if you wish. You can attach this to a mouse button with Rhinoceros > Preferences > Mouse > Buttons. Use Rhinoceros > Commands and use the Keyboard Shortcuts tab if you want to attach a keyboard shortcut.

Thanks Jeff. It brings up the toolbar the way I want it for that one time after entering the long command line. However, after that it is just the same vertical list.

well, it’s a macro… you have to assign it to something such as a mouse button, alias, or keystroke… it’s not meant to be typed into the command line.

for a mouse button, go: Rhinoceros > Preferences > Mouse > Buttons… then press your middle mouse button and the corresponding field will highlight… type (or copy/paste) the macro listed above into that field… it will now work when you press the mouse button.
