Thanks, I'll get the new UU beta and include these changes in the next manual update.

Ctrl + LB click any surface opens their Mouse settings for object navigation widgets, the cage widget mouse settings has a mouse wheel on/off button
when on the mouse wheel will activate the rotation surfaces and move and scale in the direction of the move and scale surfaces instead of the perpendicular directions of the normal settings. So you can use the left and right mouse buttons to move perpendicular to the line or the middle wheel(not button) to move along the line.

pg 212 correction: frozen 2 sided nurbs is not triangulated, need to document changes for freezing patches

missing navigation information, UV Editor section 5.2
alt+RMB drag zoom
MMB click zoom all
alt+LMB click zoom all

I thought I released the final document yesterday, but there are still a few things to add. Specifically, I was going through my UU4Clinton scripts and found that material inspect and axis tool help shortcuts exist. So I need to go through and add any missing help popups and their commands to UU4Clinton and add the missing shortcuts to the manual.

Just found out that the Fix Orphan Materials is not reliable for scene instanced materials. Need to add a note to the manual to only used with none type instanced materials.

UU updated Nov 11 - need to document quick and regular show hide and layers
DX Material Components toolbar

note - just found bug? show all will change the layer assignment for nurbs objects

some show/hide notes:
QUICK
shows a status message if you try to hide an object that does not have an ora node
hide hideall will not hide an object that does not have ora node
if you group objects the group will not have an ora node and will not work with hide scripts
The children of groups will hide/show selection. They will be ignored by show/hide all

old scenes have objects that do not have ora node so don't work until after slow hide or show is run
speed difference only noticable in large scenes(large number of items)

SLOW
hide will deselect spotlights, cameras and projector lights, hide all will not
once slow show/hide is run on an object it can be used with the quick show and hide commands with some restrictions on groups

?shortcuts still use slow show hide or new quick show hide?
boolean operations will cause items to lose their layer assignments - ora is removed
view popup toolbar will not open unless something(anything) is selected

will need new clear history warnings:
"Show & ShowAll runs Fix NURBS ORA even if the NURBS needs fixing or Not!
Not sure what the results would be if a user selected UnDo
So... I would like to add RsApp.ClearHistory() at the end of the following two scripts
NURBSUtilities/fixRenderAttributes
Commands/Fix NURBS ORA

Everytime you click in a 3D View WHEN a NURBS is selected, the following script runs:
NURBSUtilities/NURBStoCPMeshSelection

I notice that the Undo History no longer WORKS!!!
So... I would like to add RsApp.ClearHistory() at the end of the above script"


Published changes for Nov 11 release

Scripts are documented, so it should be easy to understand
The error is concerning!

You have to be careful how you use quotes. If your string has double quotes inside of it you have to use single quotes to define it. And the opposite is also true, if you have a string with single quotes you have to use double quotes to define it. A third way is to backslash all your internal quotes like this:
System.Alert(" \"Hello World\" ")
