    Since you can adjust all edges/segments in EDIT EDGES, I'm not sure I see the problem. EDIT EDGES ignores Selected Edges (indeed, all selection): all Edges are enabled for adjustment.

    I'd say the converse is more problematic: you cannot exclude Edges from alteration. But the nature of the tool is such that this isn't imo a big problem.

    BTW, the whole "ya gotta click FIRST, then do something" is the thing I really Really RILLY hate about the Mac UI: F88kers, I'm OVER the damn button, don't make me click twice to 'wake up' the app. H8 it.

    Just as a quick heads up. As I am mulitilingual I'm going to do the vids in 3 languages. English German and Spanish. Gotta push the wave no matter the lingo. Also please guys, if ypu see anything wrong with the content or my blabbering, don't hesitate to slap me left and right. I'll correct the issue asap. I'm really just a regular user and in no way "up there" with some of the light knights around here.

    That sounds great but don't wear yourself out. I've been watching several non-English LW videos, thanks to YouTube's caption translation. If the speaker enunciates well, like yourself, the auto-generated captions and their machine translation are surprisingly effective.

    Same here. The auto-generated captions aren't perfect, but they get close enough so that you can get the general idea and most details. Although if you generate a reference script, it makes the captions more accurate.

    My Modeler set up has long been to have three or four windows at the side - Numeric, Statistics, Layers and Vertex Maps. They are always present and so don't get in the way of the interface. I have been using LightWave since the Amiga days when the resolution was at most 640x512 (before I got a graphics card), and there was still room on the screen to lose a bit of the width. (this is just a meta-tip to help with having these functions present)

    PS. I also use tools that let me snap windows to each other to make this easier

    Now, I use Display Fusion (https://www.displayfusion.com/), which is a tool to manage multiple monitors, to do it; but the tool I used to use is called AllSnap (http://ivanheckman.com/allsnap/). Now, I'm still on Windows 7 and truly dislike 10, above all because it messes with my window snapping. Every time I start Modeler on Win10 I have to re-adjust my windows because Windows decides it knows better than me how I want my windows and adjusts them all by a few pixels.
