Update zone - Right click


When working with zones and selecting them,  I wish to have the option on the right-click context menu to open the update zone dialog, or even better to have the option to click so it automatically updates the selected zone without needed steps on the Update zone dialog.

Well, you can add the Update button to your toolbar.  It’s a couple of clicks faster than the menu. (If I am working on a lot of zone edits I also leave the pop-up dialog box open).  I haven’t added a keyboard shortcut yet, but I expect you can if you use it frequently.  I have a few custom key commands for other edits and they work well.


With that, I agree GS needs to review workflows as with so many newer features and modeling trends to make the platform more fluid in ways such as the one you suggest.
