Event Timeline

Francisco Fontes (francisco.fontes) renamed this task from Bone Activator to Bone Activator Addon.

I'm fairly sure that there should not be an addon for this feature. If it is a very important thing, then this operator should just be part of Blender. However, I never heard complaints about the current behavior from the animators here, so I do not know if this is all that important...

Note, I wanted to implement similar functionality for the edit mode in the past, but we decided that it was not really worth it. Also it can be a bit confusing when multiple bones/vertices are selected.
