Hi

Prior to R21, My HUD setup was applied to every scene i opened.
Now it’s seems to be applied only to new scenes, not to older ones.

for example, i set it up to show Total\Selected : Objects,Poly,Edges, Points + Camera I t will appear only a new file.
If i open an older file i’ll need to set it up again. It’s a Hud set-up i had for years.. Now it seems to be per file, not a general preference.
Maybe i’m missing on something?

Thanks

G

Hi G.,

Select in R21 all HUD options that you like to have. While they are checked and selected (orange highlighted), “Right-Mouse-Click” on one, and select the Global option. (See image)

Global V. Local means that each window can have different settings or all have the same. Since I have no scene file from you, I presume that is the cause.

All the best

You’re very welcome, Gil, thanks for the feedback.

To answer your question, I opened older versions of Cinema4D, and it is safe to say that this is around for a decade. But yes, this is not a piece of information that is shared very often.

My best wishes.
