ALT: Rotate
« on: September 09, 2013, 01:54:20 AM »
When selecting points or faces, i switch between rotate and selecting tool quite a lot of time. I suggest, if not yet there (and I missed something), to rotate/move while holding a meta key like ALT and without ALT i can select. That would help to not switch all that time between these functionality.

Hello 7eicher,

I hope that the following recommendation will help you:

- SPACE button switches last used selection tool and navigation mode (so you can quickly switch to/from navigation mode when it's necessary to rotate the model),
- holding right mouse button allows to move model in navigation mode and also while any selection tool is active.
Best regards,

Dear Alexey,

well, i guess that helps.

Is there a documentation about existing shortcuts? Would be nice, to have shortcuts as tooltips visible. Somehow I allways don't know which shortcuts exist.

Thanks

Even better would be user defined shortcuts for everything.

Giving us control over assigning hotkeys would help a lot! Right there in Tools - Hotkeys a list of all features of PhotoScan and hotkey for it.
