Keep Tool on Double-Click [message #519853] Wed, 10 March 2010 09:13 Go to next message

Hello,

if I want to create more than one object in a row, I always have to click on the palette, click on the canvas for the object to be created, click on the palette, click on the canvas, click on the palette, ... and so on and so on.

Is there a posibility to keep the tool active after object creation say if you double-click it on the palette?

I think I've seen this behaviour in another gef editor, but haven't found a way to bring it to my gmf editor yet. Is there a way to achieve it easily?

Regards,
Matthias

Hi Stephane,

that's quite straightforward, thanks Wink

But I've just looked at the mentioned gef-editor again and seen that it's actually double-click there.
So if there was a solution with double-click I would prefer that in regard to uniformity...

Regards
Matthias
