  1. I'd just like to say how amazing it is to finnally see the "Q" command being fixed.
    I've destroyed so many projects by accident over the years it's not funny.

    As soon as i read that i loaded up blender and pressed Q over and over and NOTHING HAPPENED!
    ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh wonderful.

    All of the changes i can use! Wow.. i have been waiting for that! :-)

    Thanks a lot Ton... I just transfered Euro 200 to your foundation...

  3. Harkyman,

    I am sorry that you had to go through this.
    Tough it out: it is an excellent change. I say that even though I know all about recovering the last session and saving incremental versions. I never had any trouble with the Qkey, but it reflected a certain state of mind that could be expressed by: "Why make something simple when it can be complicated?

    Thanks again for holding your end of the Blender bargain.


  4. I had trouble with the q key way back at 1.7-something. I mentioned it then, too. I'm happy that it was finally changed. The point is, when you really get cranking on a lot of mouse-clicking combined with keystrokes, it's not hard to accidentally end up on that q key. That change is much appreciated.
