I use the right click as repeat last command a lot, but occasionally I need the shortcut menu and I have to go back and change my settings for right click.
What I would like to do is make Shift+Ctl+right click bring up the shortcut menu, but I cant seem to find it in the command list and when I do searches on google it just brings up stuff about adding an item to the shortcut menu.
Is there a way to make Shift+Ctl+right click bring up the shortcut menu?
Thank you very much for any info.
I do use right click customization, that works if you dont have anything selected. If you have an object selected and hold down right click it does not bring up the shortcut menu. If you do not have anything selected it doesnt bring up the same menu as if you have certain items selected.
You need to customize your menu for different states. As you mentioned when there is nothing selected there is a menu, when you select there is a dferent menu that is based on what is selected together with other options not related to what is selected. You can customize them by running the cui command and customize the shortcut menus in your cuix. If you expand every state menu you will figure out which one you need to modify to suit your needs, most likely that being the edit mode shortcut menu
Under Shortcut Menus I see Context menu for default mode and Context menu for edit mode, but I dont see what I would need to change or address to make it work.
So If you look at the screencast the first right click is the default mode. When I select the polyline the right click menu is the edit mode. So to understand you want the edit mode to have most of the default mode?
What would be ideal is if when I right click it repeats the last command no matter what mode.
Then if I hit Shift+Ctrl+right click it will it will bring up the context dependant Shortcut Menu
You would think there would be a way to do that through typing in a custom macro, but I dont know of a command that calls the Shorcut Menu.
Make a custom shorcut menu under the cui. Then add that shortcut menu to your mouse button commands. As shown in the pic, I made brian ctrl click and added it to ctrl+click button 2 (which is the right click).
Ok, so I added a menu like you did and I copied all the contents from the "Context menu for edit mode" into the "Brain ctrl click" I went to the Ctrl+Shift+Click button 2 and cleared the assignment, now I dont see any way to actually call the new menu. I can add commands to the button, but the Brain command is not in the Command list
Go to your commands on the bottom, search for your menu name. Drag that to the mouse button. Check out the video.
