Display Toggles

Chris D


Hidden away in preferences, you can of course change (at least) two major display toggles:

- Zoom Line Thickness

- Display Black and White only

I switch between these frequently, but can't assign keyboard shortcuts to them.

A Display Toggles pop-up could allow quick switching.

It would also be useful if both of these settings could be saved in 'Saved Sheets'.

I've got the others installed, which are fantastic. I've got them in a 'Display Toggles' sub-menu on the right-click of my mouse.

Copy the Zoom Line Thickness plug-in file, renaming it to your desired name. Then use the "Create Plug-in.." menu item to edit it. Select "Script..." to edit the script, changing index 9 (Zoom line thickess) to 14 (Show other objects in groups).

Since my initial enthusiasm, the plug-in I made for 'show other objects while in groups' has developed a tendency to crash VW more often than not when I use it, especially if I toggle it while already in group edit mode.

Any common errors to look for in the script?

I'm on OS X (not Panther), VW10.5 on an eMac
