Pet Palette again

Anonymous

My dearest long standing wish is that 'drag' be removed from the pet palette.

I've lost count of the number of times that I drag by accident.

I'm curious: does anyone ever use the pet palette to drag an element?

Sometimes when modifying things in 3d window.

For 2d windows my keybinds are pretty much muscle memory.

In 3d I sometimes do an odd combination of modifications and end up using it.

I think many users drag this way, but may not realize it because it is so quick. I actually like just being able to click on something and drag it away.

What would you rather the pet palette default to, if not drag?:?

Cheers,

That's a good question, because I suppose 'drag' at least has the virtue of always being applicable.

However, I'd be happy (ecstatic, even!) if it would default to the last function used and stay there, and not revert to drag just because I happened to move something in between two stretch operations!

I'd like a faster way (without clicking on the tools of the pet palette) to select the option from the pet palette ... I always thought a way ... probably the scroll wheel would be the best and fastest way. Once the pet palette appears the scroll wheel is enabled to select the tool of the pet palette ... It's just an idea

Not exactly what you desire, but there are 2 keyboard shortcuts available: Switch to the Next Pet Palette Item and Switch to the Previous Pet Palette Item for moving along the Pet Palette. I think keyboard shortcuts for each item in the palette would be the quickest.

No good if you want to use your scroll wheel to zoom or pan while in a command
