So I have finally started using 2.8 beta. And of course there are a few things different.
I move the 3D cursor constantly = as much as I select and move objects. In 2.79b I switched mouse buttons so LEFT selected and RIGHT moved the cursor.
But in 2.8 they have made left select (fine), and now right brings up an "object context menu" that I would never in a million years use. Why? So now if I want to move the cursor I have to go ALL THE WAY up to the top left and click on the cursor icon in the tools list. Then I can move it. To go back to moving objects I have to go BACK UP THERE again.
This has to be a horrible mistake, or something I can't find in preferences to change. I've noticed that I can SHIFT-RIGHT click and move the cursor (after experimenting)... but that still adds an unreasonable action to workflow.
I want the RIGHT mouse button to move the 3D cursor like it used to. Is that possible? I want the silly menu to stop coming up when I right click because it is useless ~ if I really need it, it's under the object pull down menu.
And a side note - Z now opens a directional menu for some reason. I used to be able to quickly toggle wireframe and solid.
And 'A' to select and deselect now wants me to double tap or ALT-A.
I'm guessing the dev team has attempted to make things easier for folks that are perhaps new to modeling. But they have added time consuming steps to an otherwise smooth operation. I hope they implement an option to use 'classic setup' routines under preferences.
And I don't intend to be complaining - but I am complaining. Dang it.
I use a Corsair Scimitar mouse with 10 programmable buttons on the side. And I can reprogram one (or even the right mouse) to add in the SHIFT if I want to. And I probably will. But I am still wondering if there isn't a way for the software to do it that I am missing.
Thanks for any help.
