2.8 Default Keymap
Blender 2.8 is now fully usable with left-click object selection
(Pitiwazou) #2

That sound nice !

Don’t hesitate to make a video, it’s easier to understand your workflow :wink:


(Michael Knubben) #3

I’d like to see a video as well! I’m not likely to use this (despite being an ex-silo user), but it might help with my own customisations. Plus, I could recommend it to others :slight_smile:


(adamnerva) #4

I like some things in this config, so thanks for sharing. Just curious, why did you un-map ctrl-S from save? Do you just not save very often?


(0rAngE) #5

Here’s a vid with an outline of some of the main things in the setup.

Note, there were some updates in the setup. The link is in the 1st post.


(Michael Knubben) #6

Looks great!


(RoN43) #7

great!!! Thanks


(Stan Pancakes) #8

How come double-click to select linked isn’t in there? :slight_smile: (not that I really think it’s a must, just kind of expected to see that with all the ongoing UI vibe).


(0rAngE) #9

…I’m trying my best, but can’t think of an excuse :slight_smile:

OK. I’ll change that. See how it feels and if it’s OK I’ll update.

Edit:
Thanks!

LMB DoubleClick Select Linked
Shift LMB DoubleClick Expand Selection to Linked
Ctrl Alt LMB DoubleClick Select/ExpandTo Linked Flat Faces (needs prior selection)

Updated the file.
Same link from the 1st post


(Pitiwazou) #10

How did you do the rectangle select with the LMB ?


(0rAngE) #11

Here’s a screenshot of the required settings. You can just mix and match desired hotkey combo


(Pitiwazou) #12

Nice, thx )


(adamnerva) #13

I’ve got to say thanks. 0rAngE. This config is awesome.


(0rAngE) #14

Hey, thanks on the feedback!
Glad to hear you actually use it.


(0rAngE) #15

Updated UV/Image Editor.

UV/Image Editor selection scheme is more consistent with 3D View. The main UVz Menu is mapped to RMB
Check post #1 for more UV hotkeys.


(0rAngE) #16

Fixed deselect on (LMB) empty click, previously you had to click+drag. Thanks to PLyczkowski on the example!
Also adjusted the Tweak Threshold in System Settings to work better with the ‘Silo’ Tweak (Ihave to test this further, make sure it does not interfere elsewhere).

I’ll take this opportunity to link to his thread and addon that deals with LMB select standard. It’s a nice setup.
rSelection Addon by PLyczkowski.


(raziel_henzo) #17

please put this addon
http://blendersensei.com/zero-brush/


(0rAngE) #18

I remember seeing that addon, never tried it though.
I’ll give it a spin.

Although, you shouldn’t wait for me to include it. Just install and enable it on your end and Save User Settings.

Updated the download file. Fixed odd behavior with the Knife Tool.

Edit:
2014 12 06
Another update. Updated link from the first post.

Reworked some stuff on the MMB.

Added rRMB Menu addon (remapped it to MMB, I prefer having Wazou Right Click Pie on the RMB)
MMB: rRMB Menu

Ctrl MMB: Tweak (This one is executed on selection, and is easier to restrict to axis by an additional MMB click)
Shift RMB: Set 3D Cursor

Edit:
2014 12 12

  • Grease Pencil is set to Object by default, to work with bSurfaces and Gstretch
  • Precise Align Addon fixed to work with Simple Align addon (there was a conflict between the two). The addon is located in Addons tab

Edit:
2014 12 14

  • Fixed F2 Addon mapping, Shift F

(Jholen) #19

Thanks for shared it.

I gave a try to this. Seems all very solid, except for some drawback compared to standard Blender setup:
Cannot press E or R (scale and rotate) and move mouse for automatically scale or rotate, must click on the manipulator (one more click). Another problem is disappears fast snapping, pressing CTRL in Blender standard setup the moving component (vertex, face or edge) is snapping.

Anyway, is all a matter of habits (I don’t like frame on F). My only fear is your setting will have some conflict in other blender part outside modelling and sculpting.

How did you make the manipulator cage when active the different actions? I mean, when I press W appear the move handles, when press E appear scale handles and when press R appear the rotate gizmo.


(0rAngE) #20

Jholen, thanks on the feedback!

E / R (scale / rotate) were remapped because of the W E R manipulator hotkeys.
Alt + R: Rotate
Alt + S: Scale

I didn’t remap the fast snapping though. I don’t use it sporadically, meaning when I need it usally it’s more than just one time so I have a tendency to toggle on off, etc. For this I use the Snapping Pie (Shift + TAB), I find that convenient enough. The advantage of having the Silo-like tweak on CTRL + LMB outweights loosing the fast snapping for me (because it’s easily accessible through the Snapping Pie Menu).

If you feel you’d like to try it further, in the first post of this thread, I have a list of the major hotkeys.

To change maipulators this is the command in the hotkey editor: ‘view3d.enable_manipulator’, in addition it has check boxes for Translate, Rotate, Scale.

Basically, anything you like in the setup, you can look up in the Input Editor to see the commands, then use that to customize your own setup. Something that gets often overlooked with the Input Editor is that you can search by ‘hotkey’ as well as ‘command name’. Often time searching by ‘hotkey’ is easier to track a command.

As for the impact of the setup outside of modeling and sculpting, I can’t attest to that much, but I’d believe it’s fairly OK :slight_smile:
The goal was to minimize the impact of the whole custom setup to Blender defaults. Your assumption was correct that I use it mostly for modeling and sculpting.

Thanks again on trying it and the feedback.
