Chapter 1. Changes in the Interface > Redesigned Drop-Down Menus

Redesigned Drop-Down Menus

Many of the existing drop-down menus have been reorganized in a more intelligent manner, and new drop-down menus have been added to the main menu bar. The Track View and Schematic View menus have been combined under the common entry of Graph Editors. In the case of the new Create and Modifier menus, they provide redundant access to tools found in the Command column, which is useful for users who prefer to work in Expert mode or do not like the Command column. The Animation menu contains new features such as the new IK solvers, Wire Parameters, and Add Custom Attribute, while also including creation tools for the new bones and Point objects and constraints. The Tools menus now include entries for the LightLister and Isolate macroscripts that were buried in the Tab panel in version 3. The Tab panel is off, by default, in version 4, but it can be activated by right-clicking in the main toolbar and selecting Tab Panel. The Rendering menu has been given entries for the new ActiveShade feature as well.

The Customize menu has seen much change in this version, starting with the Customize UI entry. Selecting this option presents a newly organized tabbed window that includes entries that were previously found in the Preference window, such as keyboard hotkey setup and UI color setup (see Figure 1.7).
