Ruler visible when sculpting
Please make ruler gadget visible when sculpting, it is a vital part of sculpting measurement!!! Please!
wow, I had no idea about that. thanks @snowbird!!
Pretty sure that's a bug, but it's a good workaround at least!
Actually, if you hold the ruler and then scope in to the sculpting you are doing.
You will still have the ruler with you.
So, hold the ruler and when holding the ruler press L1 and X.
It is true. Improvement to the rulers gadget would be appreciated in a future update. thanks for the work around ideas anyhow.
Another workaround is to just make a little sculpt or even a fleck. Then use a ruler as normal, and just place copies of the sculpt/fleck marker at the ends of the ruler.
Agreed. The workaround I'm using is to size the grid appropriately and then count squares. Hardly ideal.
Yes please! I don't get why they did this. Is it to encourage free form sculpting? Now I'm constantly building stupid molds out of cubes when I need exact dimensions.
Yeah, this would be useful. Have you tried xray mode?
One way around this for now is to use a ruler, then leave textboxes at the points you want to know about. Then start sculpting and you should still be able to see the textboxes?
