    Where have 'thicken', 'multishift' and 'point normal move' gone?

    Maybe it's a dump question but where have these tools gone? I'm using Lightwave 2019.0.3. Haven't needed them for a long time. In 2018.0.7 they were still there.
    Usually they should be in Multiply-Extend or Modify-Extend respectively, but they are not.

    Is there a way to add them manually?

    Thanks!

    In my case, everything remained in its place. In 2019.1 everything is in the same place where it was in 2018.07.

    Can you locate them with CTRL-SPACE?

    They are all regular PlugIns. At least to my knowledge:
    Thicken: Multiply-Tab/Thicken.
    Multishift also Multiply-Tab.
    PointNormalMove via Modify/More (on a 1200px vertical resolution here, on a real hires probably in plain sight..)

    As i said i could not see any reason why they would have been reverted to legacy.

    Somebody needs to submit a feature request so that you could just hit a hot key (let's say "CTRL-SPACE") and then start typing the command/plugin you want. Then a pop up menu appears where you can either hit ENTER or click on the command/plugin to run it. To make it even better, this pop up menu could show where in the menu system the command/plugin exists.

    Here's a mockup of what that might look like...

    Well, in 2019.1 the three tools are present again at the right spot in the menu.

    @JohnMarchant: Thank you John for the information but here comes another dump question: Where do I find the legacy zip? Or do you mean zip-files of older LW-versions?

    There is a zip file called legacy, its in the support/plugins folder where you installed LW. It contains some older plugins that are there for, well legacy. If you have some older assets or scenes that need them.
