About editing object of instance
« on: April 04, 2018, 02:53:13 PM »
Hello,
 I am in trouble editing the instance.

When editing objects of instances created by population, can not I enter numbers when size, rotation, or movement?
To operate with the steering wheel, the accuracy gets too bad.

Is there a good way?

The accuracy is pretty good here. I used this function many times and I was able to control the rotation nicely. Perhaps your mouse dpi settings needs to go higher?

Do you carefully rotate individual objects?
Is it convenient if it can be easily done by entering numerical values?

Handle operation is inconvenient if there are many edits...

There is currently no way to edit position of individual objects in a population using numerical entry.

To improve accuracy and performance when editing instances, disable all other populations and objects first.

Thank you.
We expect to be able to input simple numerical values in the future version :)

Yes it moves and rotates slowly and smooth. If u have to edit many instances it will be also slow with punching numbers in because you have to select each object individually first.
I think it is way way faster with the mouse. At least for me... :)

Agreed. I'm quite comfortable using the handles.

What I think is a very useful thing is that as soon as you grab an object and want to rotate around it in preview for better grip or whatever, the rotation is kind of focused on the instance/object area.
