So Something that has been bugging me lately in maya is that when working it's very rare that I'm actually on the origin for any gven shape (gotta see relationships in context of the actual location) So this has given rise to me creating a cube and snapping it to the nearest vertext I in the area I'm working in. The problem is that for some reason maya has decided that it wont let you middle mouse + vert snap if your object is off screen. So I have to zoom out and go hunting for my cube.
So my question to all of you guys is... What's your solutions for quickily generating objects in the space you're currently working on? The interactive creation works with live objects but that is just as disruptive to the workflow imo. Does anyone know of a script that creates a primitive and automatically moves it to the currently selected vertex?
Anyone have any thoughts on this?
