    Question Adding a child bone without the naming dialog: AKA "one button, one bone"

    Is there a command that will simply add a child bone to the selected bone, WITHOUT putting up a naming dialog box?

    I thought I could just hit "=" and get a bone chain, but I'd have to hit "=" and ENTER. That's twice as much work!!!

    Thanks.

    - Open Lscript commander
    - Press = to create child bone
    - right click the resulting "AddChildBone Bone" entry (bottom half of the UI)
    - hit the install button

    Presto, you have 1-click bone adding. Make this new function a hotkey and you're good to go. This tip is applicable to a lot of other commands that normally bring up some kind of dialogue as well.

    COOL! Done, and I assigned it to "CTRL+B". Which was free, amazingly.

    Where does the script get saved???

    Thanks man, very cool.
