Connect Edges and Vertices
show user profile  Octopuzzy
I haven't really been using Max in a while..although every time I reinstall it I have this problem.
I want to set a shortcut for "Connect"...both edges and vertices. It exists but it's difficult to find.
Also looking for a "divide edge" which basically puts a vertex in the middle of an edge (not insert vertex which requires a click)

I can't help you, but I'd like to jump on board the question train with a related note:

Whenever I install a new version/re-install a broke version, I always struggle setting the "S" hot-key to be "Stitch selected" in the unwrap window. I know I can have S be snaps AND stitch depending on where I'm working, but every goddamn time it takes me forever to work it out.

I lied, I can help you. I think.

You want to change the "Connect (no dialog)(Poly)" in Main UI / All Commands. Not sure if Shift + Ctrl + E is default or not, but that's what I have, and connecting edges and verts works as expected.

I highly recommend this script by Nik. "UniConnector" will help your workflow tremendously, by condensing all your connection commands and stuff like bridging, into one single hotkey that is easy to recall. It's a very useful script that gives Max some real power in this area.

Connect (no dialog)(Poly) only works on verts for me.
I'll consider using a script but that would make me dislike autodesk even I'd prefer to find the vanilla solution.

Vanilla Max?.....that's just plain silly.

+1 for Uniconnector, great little script.

Stick with vanilla max and you are 6 years behind the rest of the world.
