Here is the release note of the last version
  * Rotation function is added to Circularize tool. Space-key + Mouse-drag to rotate. Since Space key has been used to toggle spacing style, you have to press Space key twice. When the spacing style is the one you want, keep pressing down Space key then drag to rotate.

So, if the spacing style is not the one you want, release Space key then press it down again to switch to the style you want as there is only two styles available. Now drag the cursor to rotate.

The "Streamline Tools Option Cycler" key(default: Space) is used extensively in a number of tools. So keep your eyes on the description of the streamline line tools when you use them the first time.

Yes, I will check, I changed space key to Best Fit, that is why it did not work. I never know about this "Option Cycler" may be it will be better to include it in stream line to have one tool? And do not have it separetly in diffrent tools? Becouse some people like me never know about it and can change space key.

I don't know what it means. But "Streamline Tools Option Cycler" can only be activated while a streamline tool is activated. So 1. Do not include that key in a streamline tool's hotkey if that tool uses it. 2. You don't need to change the key, your Best Fit operation will still works as there is no conflict unless you want to perform Best Fit while a streamline tool has been activated.

While I much like this access to sub-options without GUI I have to admit that I am often either confronted with malfunctions or not being sure what I'm actually doing. Pressing Space inmidst of a command here absolutely always conflicts with the default MaxView functionality. This is also the case for the Brush strength control in some commands, I regularly run into a series of undesired viewport manipulations when attempting to call options. Elegance may be the goal, but here the result looks like a bad hack, really. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but this whole mapping system (arround the spacebar), as I understand it cries for fine tuning and proper separation.

Secondly it often opaque to me what in-command modifier does what, is it now the spacebar I have to press or is it Caps Lock? I often end up frantically pressing keys instead of saving time. The Instant help Item often can't answer my question – it often doesn't display all the contained text, the window itself seems not to resize and I can't figure a way to scoll down the text field. Also that Help text is static, it does not give indication whether the currently desired action actually registered or failed. I btw. found better if the Status bar (the classic place for instant help) gave the user feedback – just on the presently chosen mode – while cyling through options instead of showing yet another popup window.

Are any of the links (in the first post) ever going to be fixed so they point to the new/correct locations??
(the links became broken when forum moved, which is now quite a while ago)
