... ok... I don't want to be a party pooper but... doesn't I t look a bit too much like Revit or AutoCAD or - even creepier- Microsoft Word?!?!🫣🫣🫣


not a great fan of this new look for now... I hope to be proved wrong though... looking foirward, cause I know that it will be a great step ahead anyway.

Thanks to you all 🙂


Cheers and Ciao(s)

Are there going to be non monocrome options for the tool Icons? While I love the visual uniformity I know in practice the glance value of icons that are all the same color is troublesome and can increase time finding the correct tool.

Looks fantastic! I just have one question: will you now be able to add a shortcut to "show other objects while in edit modes". 


The Quick Pref is still there



but do you mean a keyboard shortcut? To do this you can use a script + make a menu command then give it a keyboard shortcut.

which vectorscript command does toggle the "show other objects mode" on/off? 🙂 


I believe this is it:

SetPref(14, not GetPref(14));


I just use the Quick Pref myself but I do toggle Gray Other Objects using this script assigned to a keyboard shortcut which is REALLY useful as it's a real pain going into the settings to change that:

SetPref(1055, NOT GetPref(1055));

so, 1055 is:

(you can see here on the developer page)

but why 



I translate it as 'set the preference item to whatever (true or false) it is currently not set to' but that is probably wrong!


Also from developer page:

Setpref(49, false) will set preference 49 to false.


Setpref(49, true) will set preference 49 to true.


Setpref(49, not getpref(49)) will set preference 49 to whatever it is currently not I.e. the opposite of true or the opposite of false.


I think! We need someone who knows what they're talking about I'm just guessing!

These are Boolean values, meaning they are either True or False.


GetPref reads the current value of the preference.


Not(GetPref) converts that to the opposite of the current value.


SetPref(Not(GetPref)) stores the value of the preference to be the opposite of the read value.


So this combination becomes a toggle to swap back and forth between True and False.


If the read value is True then set the new value to False.  If the read value is False, then set the new value to True.
