Ok, it's Friday, I didn't get much sleep last night, and I'm feeling a tad grouchy; so this post may seem a little irritable
My biggest bugbear with FormZ is and always has been the interaction model in the Palettes. Here's a few specifics with the Object Palette that turns my cheeks a shade of red.
- Every click on an object in the Palette only responds on mouse release not initial click making interactions seem sslloowww
- If I select some items why can't I automatically group them via a contextual right click command rather than creating a new group then having to drag the objects into that newly made group
- Why does renaming objects involve two slow clicks, and then a two second delay before the object becomes editable (standard double click and contextual right clight would be so much better)
These things may seem a little nitpicky in nature but all those delays add up and disrupt an otherwise fluid modeling workflow. Pallets where items have an editable sub palette such as Materials, Layers, Lights etc are less of an irritation because a simple double click instantly opens the sub palette where edits can easily be performed.
There you go, rant over. Time for a nice cup of chamomile tea...
