I'm trying to get a hang of the new bones/joints in LW 9.6 (MAC OSX, intel). I loaded an object and proceeded to draw bones. They are huge!!! I can select them and use bone properties to size them down from a 100%, but is there a way I can change the default bone size to something smaller. I was working with a 500mm grid. The same thing applies to drawing joints. thanks

In layout: press "d" to bring up the display preferences. Down towards the bottom there is a Handles and Icons tab. Adjust the handle sizes there.

Thanks, awesome!

By the way do you know where the free mocaps from Turbo Squid are found? I downloaded some from there, but can't seem to load them into LW.
