@Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) Thanks for the clarification. But this intended behavior is a little tough to deal with. For example if I want to upgrade my keymap by changing some preference, I'd have to build everything from scratch. Quite painful.

ThinkingPolygons (ThinkingPolygons) added a comment to T58963: Double Click to Loop Select not working.

Ok, I just configured my keymap and did a quick test, and yes, both features are working pretty well together. The click for "cycling" is not that slow either. I can comfortably click to cycle or double click to loop select. So there are no issues at all imo.

ThinkingPolygons (ThinkingPolygons) added a comment to T58963: Double Click to Loop Select not working.

@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) Okay I see. Most 3d softwares have this feature yeah, but usually only for object modes or similar. I never saw this in an edit mesh situation. I'm not even sure if it's that useful in edit mode.
Double click to loop select seems far more handy than this in edit mode tho.
But even in those other apps, this feature always requires you to "click slowly" for it to work, otherwise you'll trigger the double click event.
So I guess both features can still be available in edit mode without conflicting?

Sorry, but what is "selection cycling"?
Is it a very often used feature?
I can say that the double click to loop select made a lot of users happy. If there's a chance to bring this back, I'd go for it.

That's very unfortunate. This was truly a handy feature and standard in most 3D apps. I don't think it's good to have it only for the Emulate 3 Button Mouse feature.
I hope you guys decide to bring that back.

How can I even comfortably see a very long file path in the sidebar?
Opening the sidebar/resizing just to see the full file path is just too much work imo.
I'd prefer no change at all, than putting it on the sidebar.

Please, having the file path visible on the screen is important.
If it's not possible to have it at bottom then just move it on the right side of the Run Script button. Having it in the sidebar is not ideal, because you're basically hiding something very important.

Maybe the proposed system still works. With RMB in LMB select you can open a brush selection menu that can display all brushes of all tools and if all shortcuts are still working the same way then it should be just as fast right?

We need a way (a panel) to see and access all the sculpting brushes available.at once.
This new system is very hard and slow to use.

how you guys going to handle lasso masking? i think right now it's shift+ctrl which only adds i don't think works well..probably should be exposed as a separate mode that only activates when ctrl is on, like other sculpting apps.... so the hotkeys is ctrl adds and ctrl+alt subs whenever the mask mode is active..

Nov 5 2018, 6:11 PM · Code Quest
ThinkingPolygons (ThinkingPolygons) added a comment to T55162: Blender 2.8 Blender Keymap changes.

Ctrl is not really Subtract in sculpt mode. Ctrl does the opposite of the selected brush mode you have. If you are in brush Subtract mode, then Ctrl add.

ThinkingPolygons (ThinkingPolygons) added a comment to T55162: Blender 2.8 Blender Keymap changes.

@Paul Kotelevets (1D_Inc) If you think about consistency inside of blender, you'll realize that using ctrl for subtract doesn't make sense there.

There is noting can be about consistency but about relevance and accessibility.
Relevant functions should be accessible easier, not "like in Zbrush" or "Substance Painter."
If you are setting default button to a key, that even don't exist or is moved on some keyboard types, obviously, you are making mistake.

Also.

There is no consistency about Alt in sculpting, because it is not shortcut, as far as it requires pressing.
So both Alt and Ctrl have the same consistency.

Hi.
Why the ALT key is not used for subtract in sculpt mode, instead of CTRL? It would be more in line with how generally the hotkeys work in Blender (A/ALT+A, H/ALT+H etc), and also would be more compatible with other sculpting apps like ZBrush etc..

IMO, the default collection should come expanded by default in the outliner. It's kinda weird not to see at a glance what's in your scene when you launch blender, also when you start adding objects it feels weird not to see the feedback in the outliner. ✌
