Register 360 1.6 Limit Box Weirdness

Post by mstachoni » Mon Jun 17, 2019 4:20 pm

Anyone else having issues with Reg360's Limit Boxes?

Sometimes they work fine - I can use the mouse to navigate in the orbit mode just fine, and select a limit box face or edge and adjust its size or rotation as usual. Other times Reg360 simply isn't determining that I'm over a limit box face and will only orbit. I have to exit the program and get back in for limit boxes to function as they should.

It's almost like there is a mode that needs to be toggled on or off that signals when the mouse is over a limit box face to change the mouse behavior from orbit / navigate to modify the limit box.

Are you using CTRL + left mouse to toggle orbit while in limit box mode?

That's the problem - there is no "limit box mode" activated and CTRL doesn't toggle anything. It just stays in orbit mode and I cannot affect the limit box at all.

Once I exit the project and get back in, I usually can activate a limit box and have it work - in that case CTRL will toggle between orbit and toucha-da limit-box mode. Then after a while the limit box mode decides not to work.

Can you try hitting "R" or "O" to swap between orbit and orbit orthographic? Then try to manipulate the limit box.


edit: I think I was able to reproduce the bug but maybe not in the same way you are. If you alt-tab away from the window while the limit box is active, this "breaks" the ability to toggle the faces on the limit box when you alt-tab back. I was able to workaround this by deactivating then activating the box again. Maybe something you can also try as well.

It also appears that "alt" will allow to modify the pitch/yaw/rotation of the limit box

Nope, 'r' and 'o' toggle perspective on and off as usual, but nothing works to activate limit box edting mode - even though the limit box is visible - besides exiting the project and getting back in. I do not have to completely exit Reg360 though.

Thanks for the close, reopen recommendation. That seems to be the effective path to edit limit box again.
