View Full Version : Mouse tool + ability to rotate view?

10 October 2005, 01:01 PM
Hello again.

Another question, I've used mouse tools to click for sending rays and pick faces on objects in the viewports, but I want to do this multiple times whitout loosing the ability to navigate the view. As soon as I click any other button than lclick then the tool ends.

I know that mouse tools are mainly used for object creation (as you cant rotate the view while creating geomerty). Should I try to restart the tool until a certain condition or is the soultion to switch to another method for clicking in the viewports?

Try using mouseTrack instead. You can orbit the view without deactivating the tool, and it also does the intersectray stuff for you.
