Display interactive editing values in viewport when editing a parametric object.

When you use the end of an axis to move scale or rotate and object the viewport displays the parameter value close to the selected axis.

I was wondering if there is a way to have the viewport display similar data when you interactively edit a parametric object using those little orange dots that appear along each axis.

Would also be nice to be able to Shift constrain values to round numbers when you use these handles.

Anyone know if this is possible?

Hi @cbowyer,

To the best of my knowledge, there's no way to get that information to surface automatically in the viewport when adjusting an object's properties. However, if you want, you can drag any parameter name from the Attributes Manager to the Viewport and it will then show up in the Heads Up Display (HUD) whenever you click on that object again in the future.

@Joren from ThePixelLab.net has a video on the subject.
