  1. I am having troubles with S22 Mirror Tool. When I try to mirror an Object, it will not mirror across the center line (Object Coordinate System / Y axis in Front View). It mirrors, typically right up against the opposite side of the Object itself. If I do it in World  Coordinate System, it mirror in a variety of places, almost at random, it seems, depending on where I click. 


    There used to be a white line that would appear when in the Screen Coordinate System when the Mouse was clicked, and you could drag that to where you wanted the mirror to take place. Works a dream. Now I have to click to get the object mirrored, then select the new object in Model Mode and drag to to where I want it. 

    I don't think that's the way it's supposed to work.


    Anyone else having these problems?


    I am running Catalina on the latest OS version.



  2. When using the UV Editor, it would be very useful to be able to see the UV Map clearly in the Canvas square/UV map space, especially when overlaying a background image. I have two questions about this:

    1. Is it possible to make the black lines of a UV map in the Canvas either a different color than black or make the background of the Canvas a lighter grey so the lines can be seen  more clearly?

    2. When enabling an image in the 'background' of the Canvas, is it possible to dim it so it can still be seen but does not hide the thin, black lines of a UV map?

  3. In the BP-3D Painting module, when viewing the UV Map Canvas in the Texture window, it is very difficult to see the map against the background color, making it almost impossible to use the Texture view as a guide for painting on a model. The only way I have found to make the map visible in that canvas is to activate Polygon mode in the main menu. This makes the map visible and allows you to paint on it. However, you can't then paint on the 3D model in the 3D View without activating the 3D painting mode--which then makes the map unreadable in the Texture view, and so on.


    Does anyone know how to make the map visible in the Canvas while the 3D painting mode is active?

  4. How can one make dusty glass like in this image of a wine bottle?
