Topic - ETEREA Item Custom Display Presets 1.5 • Updated December 2013

Update December 23, 2013 • Version 1.5

— Icons are defined using the new 'Icons Grid' structure introduced with Modo 701. This means a better file management: Modo does not import a lot of small PNG files, one for each icon. There are just 2 'grid image' files now, one for medium icons (20 pixels) and one for large icons (32 pixels).

— I provide an alternate old version, compatible with Modo 601, but I won't update this, sorry.

— Included two buttons to change transparency of wires ('Normal' and 'Strong')

This is another small utility I created some time ago.

I usually change my “Draw Options” for some items, specially when I'm modeling and I hate all these extra needed steps:

— Go to Display tab
— Add Draw Options
— Wireframe > User
— Wireframe Color > Define a Color
— Oopps! I don't like that wire color
— Repeat again
— …


You know: I like to work FAST ;-)

For that reason I created this time-saver:



You can quickly change to some preset colors both for Wireframe or Fill.
You can access to the color wheel too, if these presets are not enough.
And then you can change the Draw Style from Default to any other option (wire, vmap, solid…)
And of course you can remove both the Wire/Fill colors and the Draw Style.

Are the links flipped in the original post? The 701 link goes to a file with 'for601' appended.
