HOW THIS SCRIPT WORKS - BEFORE YOU INSTALL THIS BE 100% TO BACKUP BLENDER!
Toggle selection uv is a script I wrote to make Blenders functionality in the UV editor a little more user friendly. The script is a tweaked version of Blenders native “sync” mode and adds a lot of useful features, Have a look at the tutorial here:
You can download it on my Gumroad page: https://gumroad.com/l/Toggle_UV_Selection_Blender_Addon
HOW TO INSTALL
Open your preferences window choose “install from file” and find the
“toggle UV Selection” under the UV Tab and activate it.
Select a shortcut in the preferences.
Before you install this script be 100% Sure that you backup your Blender!
This script has a function that locks the uv lines from being moved inside the uv editor once you activate the “sync” mode. Since Blender does not have any built in function for this I decided to simply deactivate the commands for rotate,scale,move temporary when the sync mode is on. After some trial and error I noticed that if you save your settings in the preferences while “sync” mode is activated Blender can turn off some the native keyslots for rotate,scale,move in your input screen (see attached picture). To Prevent this I decided to build in a function that back up your keys so this should not be a problem, but be aware of this. This script will not change Blenders default sync mode so if you still want to use that it will work perfectly together with this script.
If you have any suggestions, noticed any bugs or simply would like to help me make this script even better I would love to hear from you, ENJOY!
