Summary0000053: Held RMB for mouselook in camera view
DescriptionIt doesn't look like this is reported yet:

Instead of RMB toggle to enter camera mouselook mode, a hold RMB method is (at least in this user's opinion) far more user friendly; go to the window, mouse down, drag around, mouse up and leave. Eliminates the whole "forgot to mouse click a second time to leave, oh look my view just went wacky" common occurance of current design.
TagsNo tags attached.

Also avoids problems with DarkRadiant grabbing mouse events and not letting go if a problem occurs or a debugger breakpoint is reached.

Egads, after using the toggle for a while, I'm actually getting used to it. Regardless, getting rid of this toggle mode is probably for the best. But to the point of my note: hopefully this change won't remove the mousewheel step forward/backward - I've come to depend on that (the ctrl-shift-drag is a bit cumbersome, though still useful when fine movement is needed).

One thing I like about the toggle freelook mode is that - once entered - allows you to conveniently click around in the scene with LMB or MMB. Having to hold down RMB is of course not THAT problematic, but still I find it more convient the other way.

I'd vote for an option, although the question will arise how complicated this will be.

Resolved. It's now a preference whether freelook mode can be toggled or the mouse button has to be held during freelook mode.

Look under Preferences > Camera: "Freelook mode can be toggled"

Heh, I've gotten so used to the GTKRadiant way, that now this feels awkward. But I think it'll be a welcome option. ;)
