I hope in the future the developers will add the Show Handles button to both tools. I do dislike how some options/buttons are available only to one tool when they are actually useful and relevant for some other tools in Moho. (Examples: Peak and Smooth, Reset Angle for bones and layers, etc.) This forces the user to do a lot of unnecessary clicking and tool-switching. Many of these options should be available in the GUI anytime they're relevant. This will be especially helpful when using a tablet and stylus.


I went ahead and added the button. The setting in one tool will be the same in both. Same link: https://sites.google.com/site/synthsin/ ... ects=0&d=1

It works great!

Thank you, Wes. This mod really should be part of the native GUI. :D

Just a quick FYI for anybody using the button:

Sometimes the button will appear to not show bezier handles when you click it. If you have more than one point selected, try hitting Esc or click an empty space to drop the points. The handles should then appear.

This is not abnormal behavior because you can't edit more than one pair of bezier handles at a time. It's just something to be aware of when using this button.

I agree. No idea how that got overlooked.

A lot of people have complained about slow downs and blowouts in V12. I wonder if it is Bezier
related?

I would like to get rid of the bezier handles, too. This mod sounds awesome. Thank you synthsin75.

Took me a while to figure out how to install it. You have to overwrite the original 5 files with the same name in the Tool folder.

Works great!

Hey I'm wondering about the default load out and the actual icon/name for 'fixed Bezier handles'.
I think they are not obvious what they mean or do.
Could it be more like the choice between using 'Bezier curve' or 'Moho curve'/Smart handles ?
I know what the lock means and all, but could that symbol give better 'impression' of the clever trick, that mode does?

The 12.4 update evidently erased this script, as it stopped working. I forgot how to install custom scripts, so I'm posting the step-by-step process, so next time I can do a quick forum search and find the process.

How to install a custom script on a Mac:

Download the script. (In this case, it's 5 small files. Some are code, some are art for new buttons.)

To show the hidden Moho folders, find Moho in the Applications folder, then right-click on it. A menu will appear. Choose Show Package Contents.

The script needs to go into the tool folder:
/Applications/Moho.app/Contents/Resources/Support/scripts/tool

Navigate to the tool folder (note, this is NOT the "Tools" with an s folder). Drag/paste all the script files into the tool folder and say "yes" to over-writing the ones already there.

Funny coincidence...I realized this morning I don't have this script installed on my home computer and I needed this info. Thanks for posting. :)

Since this is a mod of an LM tool, new updates will overwrite it if you install to the program's directory. If you create a custom content folder and install it there, you won't lose it when updating.
