I want this in MOI!!! Unbelivable tools!

Hi Will, yeah I mean the problem is that is a pretty big limit to only work with those particular tools.

Wouldn't it be nice if you could do something like draw a circle, then array it to make 8 circles, then perform a boolean with those, then after all that is complete, go in and edit the original circle and get a real-time update to reflect your edits?

That's the kind of thing that I hope to enable with a deeper history function, but of course there still is plenty of work to do to make that happen.

But if that can get set up then it is far more flexible and powerful type of real-time feedback that would work in a lot more situations rather than just for a kind of one-shot drawing tool.

Also another related area may be a special kind of "hole" command at some point in the future that could end up being pretty similar to a combination circle command with real-time booleans.

But a special mode added for every single drawing tool.... It just seems like so much UI to add... It would just need to provide a pretty significant benefit in exchange for that, not just a "cool factor"...

It is tough keeping MoI's UI streamlined and easy to use, I mean doing that does mean being pretty careful about keeping things simple.
