Nice, I've wanted to use multi-object select on a few occasions now so that's a welcome addition. Also the gadget tool looks really handy for modeling - any news on a date when we can expect to see 5.6?
I'm most impressed by the object naming in the object browser menu, the tabbing through scene objects in the object browser and multiple selections in the 3D view. Seems like simple stuff but so important for keeping in the flow.
Lovin' the gadget tool, I think this point release is soooo important to the general workflow of C3D. I love these kind of improvements.:wink:
It looks good but it is misleading. I remember finding it confusing that the C3D transform widget had cube widgets for scaling (like Silo) but a central cube that was for ... what? ("things that behave differently should look different" to paraphrase Bruce Tognazzini).
Surely there's something that will look good but not imply it is a scaling device. Perhaps a small wire square or circle.
BTW by default if I create a cube in a blank document I get a grey cube widget on a grey cube on a grey background. I think it would be nice if C3D didn't default to making grey on grey on grey.
