Shortcut for turning off grid axes & world axes icon


#1

Is there a way to quickly turn off the grid, grid axes and world axes icon? I’ve found the icon to toggle on/off the grid but I can’t find an equivalent for the grid axes and the world axes icon. Having to go to the options to do it is a bit of a pain when you just want to have a quick look at your model with no distractions.

Could this be done with scripting? I know nothing about scripting but this could be a good way to learn.

Hi MisterB- you can make a macro for this- the model would be the macro that is on F7 by default:

noecho -_Grid _ShowGrid _ShowGridAxes _Enter

modified:

noecho -_Grid _ShowGrid=_Yes _ShowGridAxes _Enter

That will just toggle the axes and leave the grid on. And so on…, tune to taste.

Thanks, Pascal. I think I meant macro when I said scripting. I had scripting on my mind after seeing it mentioned here and wondered what it was all about. I investigate macros, I haven’t used them in Rhino before but have in other programmes so I’m sure I’ll be able to figure it out.

Thanks for your help.
