I have been using Blender for a long time and have developed my own little worque flow that I have gotten rather used to.
With the release of the 2.5 series, my worque flow has of course undergone numerous changes and adjust-ments. Most of them for the better. But one change, quite honestly, has continually tripped me up.
My beloved spacebar now brings up a search menú instead of an add menú. And yes, I have known for years that Shift + A, will do the same thing. But that isn't what I learned when I started. And of course, 10 years of muscle memory still finds me hitting the space bar and still being surprised when a search option comes up instead of an add menu.
Rather annoying, to say the least.
Having decided that I would just have to get used to it, I was overjoyed when I discovered that there was a wonderful new addition to Blender.
The "Add On" section of the User Preferences window. This lovely little window is populated with a number of "add on" extensions that can be enabled / disabled as you need. The addons set to enabled willof course load automatically when you launch
There are already a number of funand useful add ons, but the one that makes my day is the "Dynamic Space-bar Menu".
When enabled it brings up a content sensitive menú full of useful options, in-cluding "Add Object".
Yay me! My workflow is saved. And now I'm off to explore what else is hidden in the "Add On" section.
