2.49->2.6x

Hi guys, I am trying to get used to 2.62 but some things just lacks in 2.62
For example in 2.49 you could “draw” line into 3d space and object went into “move” mode, you could draw circle to turn on “rotate” mode or letter “V” to turn on “scale” mode.
And this things lacks in 2.62, so I wanna ask, if there is possibility to turn on this “drawing” somehow also in 2.62…or if there is any plugin for that
Thanks

Not sure if it exists, but isn’t it easyer to use the hotkeys for that?
G: Grab/Move
R: Rotate
S: Scale
These seem faster than mouse gestures anyways.

Yeah I know about them, but easier and more comfortable for me is that painting on canvas… :frowning:
