In Blender 2.4, the object centers are those new little pink circles instead of the pink and yellow points of old. In the previous Blender, the object centers were always displayed, even if the object wasn’t selected. The result was a yellow dot for the centers of the selected objects, and pink dots indicating the location of unselected objects which was especially useful when you had objects made up of single vertices (in my case a partical emitter) that don’t show up in regular views or small seperated parts of a complicated mesh.
With the new system I have to either select all objects to locate the center of lost object or parent an empty to it to keep track of it. So why haven’t the two systems been integrated, allowing you to still see the centers of the other objects, perhaps in a different color or just smaller?
