Standardized procedures for cutting pasting copying etc. etc. etc. have been in existence, long, long before Lumion
decided to reinvent the wheel. Some programs even allow users to change the way they are used to working within other 3d cad programs. In Addition a right click dialog box would instantly allow those action to take place.
way of thinking appears to be: remember our "trick and shortcuts"
Are you kidding me! Who has the time to discern specific shortcuts on a daily basis, from Revit, from PS, from SketchUp, from Maya, from Modo, from Worldmachine, etc. etc.
programmers not heard of the Directional Gimbal tool: it allows movement in all directions of any desired object in 3D space? a good example is Maxon's Cinema 4D
small sample for the the Lumion Tips. Tricks and Shortcuts is copied below:SELECTING, COPYING, MOVING AND ALIGNING OBJECTS
(CTRL) + Drag with Left mouse button: Rectangular selection tool for selecting multiple objects.
(CTRL) + (SHIFT) + Drag with Left mouse button: Add new rectangular selection to existing selection.
(ALT) + Move selected object(s): Copy-paste selected object(s) by pressing ALT while dragging one of the selected objects.
(ALT) + (X) + Move selected object(s): Copy-paste selected object(s) and retain the rotation of trees & plants by pressing ALT while dragging one of the selected objects.
Place object mode -> (CTRL) + Left-click: Randomly place 10 copies of the currently active object library model.
Place object mode -> (Z) + Left-click: Place a new object with +/-0 to 50% random scale.
Place object mode -> (CTRL) + (Z) + Left-click: Combined operation of above mentioned Place Object Modes. Randomly place 10 copies of the currently active object library model with +/-0 to 50% random scale.
Who has the time to understand much less remember all this Shortcut stuff ?
However if this stuff was in a right click popup menu I might be more productive.
It maybe hard to believe but I'm trying to provide constructive criticism!
