These is an overview of the tool settings for active tools.
We will start by testing the tool settings concept with these tools. These tools are our test bed:
Here's an unsorted list of tools with their respective tool settings:
There are more we want to add, but this is a start.
- When using 3D Cursor Plane, we display a transparent 'floor' perpendicular to the current 3D Cursor plane, which changes depending on the camera angle. The user drags on the plane to add the base of the cube, then drags up to set the height.
- When using 3D Cursor, the user drags inside the view to add a cube using the 3D Cursor as a centre point. We then show a scale cage for resizing.
- When using Normal Plane, the user can drag on any surface, and a cube is added on the surface, aligned to its normal. Using a modifier key can make it scale out from the point where the user drags from.
