Last summer we launched the ability to edit pivots. We eventually made the feature an opt-out beta, however there were some remaining concerns. We have made one more round of improvements to the beta in an attempt to resolve these concerns before we move it out of beta:
Use Bounding Box Move handles
- If you prefer to keep your handles around the bounding box, you can go to Studio Settings → Use Bounding Box Move Handles to turn them back on. You can still edit the pivot, but your move handles will be around the bounding box. You can also still summon the move handles with the tab key, and in this case, the move handles will center around the cursor while the tab key is held.
Improved snapping and scaling
- Snapping will now snap to parts within a Model while holding alt/option. Scaling will also scale based on the pivot when the control/command key is pressed.
One pivot at a time
- We will only show you one pivot at any given time; if you select a complex model, we will only show you the relevant pivot at that time.
Thank you again for all the feedback; we hope this helps you use the pivot editor without having to change your current workflows. Please keep the feedback coming!
