|Fixed in Version||0.9.0|
|Summary||0000098: Scale Manipulator is not functional, remove?|
|Description||I think it has been mentioned in the forums once, it should probably be removed, shouldn't it?|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|If it's non-functional, then yes it should go.|
|I'll look into it, perhaps I'll find the reason why the ScaleManipulator does not work and if it is easy to fix.|
|I could fix the Scale manipulator. The FacePlane::transform() method did not normalise the plane normals after the transformation has been applied.|
Something seems strange here - I used it, and all seemed well in the X and Y directions. When I turned to the side to try Z direction, it only moved up instead of up and down, and then when I dragged down (to shrink) the brush appeared to blow up to maximum size (off the screen) or vanish. I used UNDO, and then went back to XY view, and noticed that it was no longer snapping to the grid.
Edit: Also, I notice that many times the origin axis (or whatever it's called) doesn't appear in the center of the brush, but sometimes off to the side, even up against one of the edges.
No reliable reproduction at this point, but just using it should show some of these results.
|I don't seem to be able to reproduce this. I switched the views several times, and the scale manipulator always stayed functional.|
|SneaksieDave, your note text seems to be lost after the recent server issue, are there any updates on this?|
Shit! :) Yes, I responded in detail, with images (now lost on) imageshack, even. Now I don't have that post anymore, so I'll try to sum up:
1. It's not just Z axis as I originally thought - it happens on any axis. Create a brush, and as soon as you scale it down to zero size (don't let go), the size jumps to something like 131074. Then, if you drag it any further, it jumps back to "normal" expected numbers. Undefined/unhandled values at 0.
2. After doing scaling around, zoom in and have a close look at your brush. It's probably no longer grid aligned. Happened each time I tried.
And finally, in conclusion,
3. It's not a tool I'd ever use, so I'm fine with it going away. It sucked in pretty much every editor I can remember (even being disabled in some - T3Ed, I think?) because it's apparently by-nature problematic, so I don't use it. :)
It's only natural that the resulting brush is not aligned to the grid anymore (same with the rotation manipulator).
I wouldn't want to use this tool either, so if everyone agrees, I'll remove it after all.
|Scale manipulator disabled in latest SVN.|
