Max 2010 keyboard shortcuts
show user profile  Sangre
I'm having problems assigning shortcuts in 3ds max 2010. Assigning Shift+Ctrl+E to "Connect (with dialog) (poly)" connects edges, but not vertices. Assigning Shift+Ctrl+E to "Connect (no dialog) (poly)" works the other way around (connects vertices but not edges). If I switch the "Keyboard shortcut override toggle" into ON position then both edges and vertices connect but suddenly the Shift+Ctrl+C shortcut doesn't work when I need to collapse.
Seams like a simple problem that I just can't find a solution to.
The exact same assignments work fine in max 2009.

Yea Max has issues. http://www.maxforums.org/threads/connect_edges_vertices/0001.aspx
I ended up going with the suggested script.

So I've dragged and dropped the script to the viewport and got a message "Actions are stored in Category: "Niklit Scripts" but it didn't fix the problem. Am I doing something wrong?

No, but you need to bind a hotkey to it, then that key will be used to connect verts/edges/bridge etc

I was looking for Niklit Script in the "Customize user interface" window. Turns out I should have looked for UniConnect.
Now it works great. Thanks! Using newer versions of Max is now slightly less annoying. Stupid little thing like that shouldn't be fixed with a script if you ask me.

I know I've had this conversation with Octopuzzy before, but it's weird... I've always been able to use Ctrl+Shift+E for connecting verts and edges as expected.

As for the keyboard override toggle, I have that disabled unless I'm working in the UVW unwrap window.
