Blender’s TAB key operation for mode-switching is currently super unreliable, in my opinion:
- You have to RELEASE the key before anything happens. Just pressing TAB won’t switch modes.
- You CAN’T MOVE THE MOUSE, at all, when you press TAB – the mouse cursor has to be absolutely dead still, otherwise no go.
Am I the only one on Earth struck by this? As a Blender starter, this is the only thing that ever reached my nerves; 4 out of 10 times, pressing TAB does nothing … Prior to investigating the matter, I couldn’t quite put my finger on why mode-switching felt so unpredictable. Because it wasn’t related to project complexity and TAB always worked flawlessly in other programs. So. Here’s my specific question :
How can I TAB-switch between Edit/Object Modes in the 3D Viewport, without being required to first release the key, and then also minding that the mouse cursor is absolutely dead-on still?
