Erik Abrahamsson (erik85) added a comment to T82952: Blender closes when changing mesh data block.

Can confirm. This can also be triggered by

  1. Put the default cube in edit mode
  2. Create a new scene
  3. Create a new object and change the mesh to the one in edit mode in the other scene.

Erik Abrahamsson (erik85) added a comment to D9180: [WIP] Box/Lasso Selection behavior options.

In CAD programs selection is usually additive by default. That means, that selection box always add objects to a selection until selection will not be deselected intentionaly, this allow to form complex selections without holding any keys and loosing previous selection set.
Is such an option planned in this patch?

It sounds like you're trying to import a file that doesn't exist. Did you mean to export? Or why don't you just choose your .obj file instead of writing the name of it?

Erik Abrahamsson (erik85) added a comment to D9180: [WIP] Box/Lasso Selection behavior options.

However from what I can tell, directional selection is a standard in CAD apps, but not in other 3D app similar to Blender. So the standard choice there would be to disable directional selection by default in the preferences.

It's been available in 3ds max for more than 10 years. I think Modo also. Not sure about Maya.
Do you have any thoughts about a flip option Brecht, or should I just keep it simple like the current state?

Erik Abrahamsson (erik85) added a comment to D9180: [WIP] Box/Lasso Selection behavior options.

I agree that we should try to follow the industry standard, but I guess it would be quite easy to add a setting to flip the direction.
I was also thinking maybe there should be toggles to enable/disable this feature per operator? Right now only 4 operators (3d View box/lasso and Nodes box/lasso). There is a risk that would become too messy though.

Erik Abrahamsson (erik85) added a comment to D9575: RNA: Expose bases in ViewLayer to python.

I trust that you know by your huge experience what you are talking about, but from my point of view it's definitely the easiest way to access view layer specific settings per object and really should be possible through the API.
The two properties available are hide_viewport and select. Who knows, maybe in the future there will be more view layer specific settings and then those will appear automagically instead of making workarounds for those too.

I'm giving this a go again. Would appreciate if someone can look at it. I'm also open to continuing this creating similar functions in other areas to speed up data input/output from Python if someone know of a bottleneck somewhere.
Reading the weights using the new property .weights() is around 30 times faster than looping through all vertices and calling .weight(index) in Python.

Aw, I thought we are discussing the usability of the method, applied by patch as well.
Sorry then...

Maybe you did, but I thought you meant you wanted to add something that's already in the patch:

Well, I think it can be solved by adding forth option "always crossing, independently from direction".

But you're right the current blender default behavior should probably be an option (the default) as well.

Erik Abrahamsson (erik85) added a comment to D9180: [WIP] Box/Lasso Selection behavior options.

This one is a super welcome feature!
Right now selection is quiet inconvenient in edge mode, hope patch will find it way to the end!

That's because there is a complete nonsense which affects how edges are selected depending on how many of them are contained within the selection box. That nonsense should be fixed regardless of this patch. I can't imagine a horror of the workflow where user is forced to change direction of his selection just to make edge selection work properly.

The edge selection nonsense really needs to be addressed separate of this patch. It should not be the case that this feature with its frustrating drawback of dependency on selection direction is the only reliable way to select edges with box selection properly.

The fix for that complete nonsense was part of the https://developer.blender.org/D6322 which was rejected because it added single checkbox to the tool settings. This patch however adds 3!!! new checkboxes and yet is not rejected. Go figure...

I'm not entirely sure if this made it better or worse, but I'm trying a new thing where the code is basically completely rewritten. Now there are three buttons called "inclusive", "exclusive" and "directional" next to the selection modes. I'm not sure about those names but that's another question.

Erik Abrahamsson (erik85) claimed T80819: Zoom To Border operator - zoom factor is too high in the perspective view..

Ah, I get what part of the problem is now. It's not taking the viewport focal length into account. The problem gets worse as you increase the focal length of the viewport.
Another problem is that the height of the selection box is not very important in the calculations either which means any box with a lower x/y ratio than the view will get cut more.
I made a patch that kind if works a bit better but I will continue investigating.

Erik Abrahamsson (erik85) claimed T81542: Threshold of the 'Select Similar' operator (Shift G) is very limited at large scales..

I tried to fix this in a simple way by multiplying the threshold value with the value that is compared against. And if delta is negative, the threshold is multiplied by 0.5 to make the range between 50% smalller to 100% bigger. Do you see any problems with this? Will it mess with any other select similar modes?
