    It depends if Flash is installed and enabled for the browser. I don't see it because I'm not running Flash.

    Yeah, that's really bad behavior, it can lead to really unfortunate surprises.

    Oddly, on Mac, I'm encountering an "opposite"-ish problem: I can't get Metamorphic 1.4.5 to respond to keystrokes at ALL. I can't get it to undo Metamorphic actions by ctrl-Z or cmd-Z even when the Metamorphic panel/window has focus, nor get "p"/"f"/etc. to change sculpt mode -- keystrokes are just sent to Layout and processed using Layout meanings, never by Metamorphic (or at least I can't get them to be). The gadgets work to trigger actions, but the associated keystrokes never seem to do so with either Layout main window, viewport, or Metamorphic window/panel with focus. Metamorphic.plugin 1.4.5 (About text) created 28Jun2018. Go figure.

    Anyone else on Mac (10.13?) encountered similar issues with MacLW 2018.0.5 & Metamorphic 1.4.5?

    I sent the bug to Jamil by email as well, hopefully he'll figure out what's going on there. It's kind of a major annoyance to always have to use UI widgets in Metamorphic panel (on Mac).

    This definitely has me worried and I hope we get some news soon...this plugin looks amazing and I was definitely planning on buying. With two kids in daycare and 3D being a hobby as of now, I'm pretty broke all the time.

    This is indeed the kind of message that appears when NewTek buys a developer's product but there's also a fear that some patent troll woke up. Or maybe there's a new, evolved tool he's about to release. Hoping for the best, regardless.

    My best hope for it would be that Newtek bought it to provide it within the next lw release, no more additional plugin, or standalone chronosculpt...though I need to look in to if it can cover all chronosculpt aspects.
    If it arrives Natively to lightwave..then the newtek team would finally be implementing what I said chronosculpt should be from the very beginning, inside lightwave, and it would also start to cover basic sculpting needs.
    Would be exciting if it maybe arrives within the next release.

    But just guessing, and they would need to make sure they have people that can continue to develop it.

    Better yet - maybe NT hired Jamil on as a full-time developer with a signing bonus to get Metamorphic.
