Select Menu speed bump
The popular free Select Menu plugin is now faster! I guess one could say it’s a speed bump in that its speed has been bumped up. Then again, its speed bump has been the result of removing (unless you want it) a speed bump, as in those bumps in the road intended to make you slow your vehicle down.
One recent improvement, or so I believed, was when the plugin checked for the existence of various types of objects in the current document and disabled unneeded menu items so as to save users from looking for something that’s not there. In a very large or complex document, however, that search can take a second or two, or longer, so the feature didn’t necessary save much time. With version 16.0.6, the default behavior is to enable all menu items whether needed or not. If you decide you’d rather have the menu parse the current object types, just press the Alt or Option key while selecting the Select > Object menu and the plugin will diligently search like Yoda examining the contents of Luke’s food case.
Did I mention that it’s free? Yup, still free.
