I just had a client in to show him options on a complex wall unit. I have 16 scenes and 22 tags, with the best options set in the scenes. Of course, he throws me a curve— what if the cornice blank, just a plain panel up to the ceiling. I toggle the cornice off to show him, then toggle it back.
Whups! It doesn’t come back. Instead, the ceiling disappears, and when I click again, there’s a file cabinet obscuring the view. Third time is a charm, so I click and the entrance wall blocks everything, covering the screen in gray.
I fumble for a minute or three before I realize the list of tags is reordering itself, grouping tags into those visible and those not. Unfortunately, knowing this is not enough, I make the same mistake several more times before we are done.
I am used to V.8, where the list is the list, and all you have to do to see if a layer is active is to look at the eye on the left. I really don’t need them grouped, I really want them under my cursor without jumping around so I can toggle different effects on and off.
Is there a way to stop this annoying behavior? Seriously, it added ten minutes to my presentation and made me look (even more) like a bumbling fool.
