Benefits and Description

When an element is preselected, the system offers a context specific default operation. The user can either start working immediately by dragging the active handle or – just as easily – switch to another operation with one click in the command mini toolbar right next to the selected element. The new mini toolbars are available for quick selection of the most frequently used commands and also the option controls within the command. The Select mini toolbar is very handy to control the selection and to activate the enhanced Probe selection for very efficient navigation and feature selection.

This new interaction method drastically reduces mouse travel and number of clicks to perform model creation and modification tasks.
