Hi It seems that in the latest updates the way you exit from a text edit changed? It used to be I could make a change to a text object then hit escape and move on. Now it does not apply those changes unless i mouse over to the OK button.
Is there any way to disable this or go back to escape simply exiting the window? It seems trivial, but mousing over to the OK when I’m editing large numbers of notes on a drawing really adds up to a lot of time.
Hi @nscross - escape is generally considered “cancel” in Rhino. That you could edit the text, then press ESC to accept changes sounds wrong to me.
However, it does seem like a quick way to get out of the dialog box would make sense. If the text edit box were not multiline, you could just press Enter. But since it’s multiline, press Ctrl+Enter instead to exit the dialog box.
There are dozens of places that I wish I could use a keyboard in macOS in general (like accept a non-default button on a dialog box - I can’t use arrows, maybe there’s some other way, but I don’t know it). Maybe this is just be part of how it’s supposed to be on macOS?
That dialog box is the only place where Esc doesn’t mean cancel in Rhino. I don’t think making it work the way it used to makes much sense - especially since we’d have to go back and fix a whole bunch of other dialogs to treat Esc as Enter.
yeah i’ll get used to it I guess. The way it is now is how photoshop works and I’ve always disliked it. If there was any way to get out of it faster, maybe clicking outside etc. I just tend to be hitting esc a lot in between commands, like turning off control points etc, it was pretty natural. There’s a lot of times that I’m editing text items all day, adds up to a lot time.
i really have no idea what you were trying to say here. it seems you have lost it with the mac keyboard or are hating about it even? it leaves me confused finding a thorough relation to what i have stated.
i would expect the mac version to function as similar as possible to the window version. generally the dominant difference between cmd and ctrl is an acceptable and commonly used deviation, for the rest i would say it is in your hands to make the difference as subtle and as (un)necessary as possible.
other applications i am using on the mac for now more than 2 decades have made this possible, i dont see why rhino for mac has to be extra difficult…
but on a side note, i appreciate that there are different shortcuts possible on mac, some which seem locked for the windows version.
