The Poly Pen is one of the best modeling tools out there, in any 3D package. It’s very intuitive, versatile, and efficient.
My only gripe with it is that they added this “Draw Mode” to it that was not originally there. The Draw Mode requires that you change whether it’s operating in Point, Edges, Or Polygons mode in the Attributes Manager. This was not originally there when it was released.
I have keyboard shortcuts assigned to the different component modes, and it way faster to hit a key to switch into Points than it is to reselect the Poly Pen, drag the mouse to the Attributes Manager, Hit the drop down menu, then select points. Do that 1000 times in a project and it’s a nightmare.
They could fix this by adding a fourth option to that drop down for “Document Mode”. This would default to use which ever component mode is selected in the document.
Worse, they have that “Document Mode” in the Tweaking Mode drop down menu… so why was this missed in the Draw Mode?
