OK, here is a plugin challenge for all you FZ coding fiends:
A pallette that lists the last used command and the shortcut assigned to it. It could behave like the prompts pallette showing a number of recent commands and their shortcuts depending on the size of the window.
A keyboard shortcut could highlight the latest used command in this pallette and change the scroll wheel (or arrows) to scroll inside the recent commands. Enter or leftclick could then activate that command.
Wadda ya think?

Sorry Peder. There is no way to tell within the SDK which tools are getting executed.

Too bad. It seems FZ suffers from mild case of multiple personality disorder. The prompts and Undos seem to know what's been going on lately :-)
Ah well consider it a suggestion for the future then!

Are you also implying that there is no way to implement a "Last Tool" command, such that by invoking a shortcut, the previous tool used would once again become active, (or made the current tool)?
Sometimes having such a short cut would reduce the number of tool shortcuts a person would need... That is for someone who likes to use a large number of tools, not just box making tools.
I wouldn't rate it exceedingly important myself, but probably would try it. I'm one who would naturally look at other priorities first but am a little curious.

You're correct. There is no way within the SDK to make a "Last Tool". Sorry!

We would really like to see this added to the API, so we might add features these (as well as others).

For the Non Coding Users.
The split in personality that Peder referrs to and that ADS alluded to is the SDK. It is the part that we external coders use to create the extensions for fZ. Part of that is called an Application Programmers interface, or API. This has all the code that we use to add our code to to build an extension.
So, even though fZ can know what tool was used last, this ability was not added to the SDK/API.
I will Ditto Pylon.
And, add to that, the ability to telly any (other) tool to become active.
