Does anyone know if it's possible to set the align to edge option for the translate tool in maya to a single hotkey?
The tool option is hidden inside menus and it's slowing down my workflow. The marking menu for this is ok but I'd rather not have to select the option and pick an edge, I'd like it to use whatever I already have selected or 1 step better, whatever my mouse is hovering over via pre-selection highlighting.
My goal is to eventually build a mel or python script (if it's possible) that uses pre selection highlighting to grab whatever edge my mouse is hovering over and then run the align to edge command without having to click anything and then assign it to a hotkey.
Perhaps this script or something similar already exists? If so I'd love to know where to find it!
