When selecting multiple objects it is normal to hold the Shift button to add to the current selection. If you want to add to the selection by using a window/crossing window it often happens that you unintentionally drag objects. It would make sense if dragging was temporarily disabled whenever Shift is held down.
For all us Wacom pen users: Alt+right-click = middle mouse button, for pop-up menus etc. Not fair…
Also, alternative keyboard left-click for inputting points with precision (hold pen in desired position over tablet, then left-click using keyboard (end key, for ex).
Broken history warning: it would be useful if the pop-up listed and named the objects affected, with the option to highlight/zoom to objects, like it works with with the naked edges dialog box. Also show which object is the parent…
“Repeat Selected” command: select an object, invoke command (perhaps with Ctrl+Return) which would repeat the last command used on that object, no matter what has happened to other objects since.
Option to identify and merge materials with identical properties- for when you import/merge models and end up with multiple copies of materials…
Control Point colour shift when weight is +/- 1. Blue=less than 1, Red=more than 1, with value in pop-up on mouse-(h)over. (Please never red/green combo for us colour-blind guys). Button to select all other points of same weight, and…
Nice to be able to group and name sets of control points *Groups have numbers… it would be nice to be able to name them.
*** I see this has been addressed, but only for V7 V7
Alt Click to select submember of group (you can then edit it but it remains a groupmember)
Zoom Extents option to exclude Lights, which are often far away from the model (maybe a ZoomAllGeometry command or even a full include/exclude list)
Niggle with selected object: if Surface Isocurves is not ticked in any display mode, selecting an object will display its isocurves, but you cannot drag an object by clicking on them (which action usually deselects them). If it’s visible you should be able to grab it.
Option to add/remove objects to control cage, added objects then assume transforms of the cage.
Sun Options panel should have a Brightness setting (%).
That is a very nice list of missing features to be implemented in Rhino 7. I totally support these propositions!
I also proposed many other features in other topics, but I will add here two of the most critical ones:
An optional pop-warning upon deletion of selected objects that are outside of the visible portion of the screen.
A reverse countdown that shows up several seconds (5-10) before an upcoming Autosave. Autosave quite often breaks active commands and is especially disruptive while moving, rotating or scaling objects. Sometimes Rhino even freezes upon dragging of objects or control points while Autosave is suddenly activated.
Ha, that makes not only the logical set of every smallest curve (like they all cut each other into the smallest possible parts), but every ‘possible’ combination of curves as well.
Run it on a bunch of curves to see what I mean.
In the pic, if I run the script on the curves, then select on the yellow dot, it shows all the resulting curves…
I’m sure I’ll find a use for that one day…
It’s a real hack - finding all the intersections of all the objects and then running Rhino’s Split command… but yeah, it does work. Note it also works with surfaces and polysurfaces and (theoretically) any combination of such.
I’ve never noticed that (maybe I spend too much time at the command line level thinking about what I want to do next), but frankly I think the most practical solution is for Rhino, when it decides it’s time for an autosave, to wait for the currently active command to finish. Perhaps your suggested popup warning could occur during the active command or even upon it’s completion. A countdown wouldn’t be necessary since the user would know that it’s coming when the current command finishes.
