Title: Rotate shortcut
Post by: CSMcKillip on October 01, 2012, 10:25:17 pm
I do not know if this has been addressed yet. Can you rotate an object when placing it by holding down the left button or hold a key.

Kind of like when you hold control - Left click to place multiple objects

I have read that you can hit the escape key, but this also moves the Z insertion point when moving or rotating.

I am such a Noobie its already there.....

Sure, here's how:
(R): Rotate heading.
(P): Rotate Pitch.
(B): Rotate Bank.

Hmm, you've got a point :-\

The (R) shortcut is in fact inside another section in the Tips, Tricks and Shortcuts thread. I'll fix that right now, so it has its own entry. Thanks for making me aware of it.

In Lumion 3.0, it will be much easier to use keyboard shortcuts, so there should be less use for that tips and tricks post in the future :)

What I was getting at in my first post (in the other section now moved) is when I layout parking lots it would be nice to be able to rotate the model before insertion. Laying out mutiple cars and then rotating them is just another step in the process. This would be also cool with People.

So if you could rotate the lumion object (NSEW) before hand then you dont have to rotate it after you insert the model. Re holding down the left mouse button and holding down (R) and seeing the rotate arrow then plopping the object down?

Just a thought

Thanks

Thanks for clarifying - I know exactly what you mean (as it has been requested before).
