    Did you file a request, Erikals? Do you have a number that I can point out to the devs, because that looks like a great option.

    That’s the first thing I tested as that is one reason why I open DOMO. In all reality when local is selected the move tool should act more like point normal move and move any and all selected polygons along their normals. The rotation part of this should work the same as DOMO as well. It does size properly but doesn’t scale properly. 3D apps should work in 3D.

    Application B does it correct as well. Tim is correct: just needs to act along the normals.

    I am unsure the developers can be blamed: if this feature wasn't thoroughly tested by an experienced modeler, how are they to know something is missing?

    The problem now is that with untested features EVERYONE becomes a beta tester. Voila. The result of not interacting with your users.

    true, coders code, they are not modelers / animators

    Viktor Veličko (LWcad) was happy with their work tho'
    ...sorry, couldn't find the quote atm.

    guess Modeler got some new (invisible) updates.


    this said, it is vital that they get the Local Action Center right, and workplane / history when that time comes.

    well, they did add a Generalized Meta-Data System,

    ...might be just what Modeler needs.


    find 2020 overall more interesting than 2019

    p.s. half price on LWcad these days...

    The problem isn't with the Local Action Center, but with the Rotate tool, that needs to have a "rotate around normal" option.
    Currently it rotates around the viewport plane.
    That's just the way the Rotate tool works. It has nothing to do with the new action center.
    Same goes for the Stretch tool. They should both have an option to work around the polygon normal.
    Kind of like what the Move Plus tool already does.
