    2019-Modeler, Didnt know stuff

    I havenīt used modeler in 2019 that much, got a surprise when I was about to smooth a mesh, it is now with option to use realtime smoothing if numeric panel is open, that means you do not need the chris peterson realtime smooth plugin if using lw 2019 that is.

    Actually there have been a number of small enhancements with Modeler thru the 2018-19 series. A few that come to mind are: UV's are maintained when you use the the Merge Triangles command. And when removing edge strips on polygon islands the first and last points are now being removed. Also the Extrude tool will always create properly flipped polygon normals no matter which way the user extrudes a face or a group of faces. There are others as well and I'll come back and post them as I run across them.

    Here's another: "Don't Save Any" option upon clearing Modeler.
