Hello~ I'm not sure where this should go but I figure general discussion should be a safe bet. After being away from SL for 2 years, I found some things are quite different from when I was playing.

Back when I was playing, I could right click any object or item (whether rezzed, attached, or in my inventory) and edit the object and the build tool menu would appear with the item already selected within the menu. Now when I right click and edit, it stills open the build tool menu but would remain blank (as nothing has been selected). Which would then require me to find the object or item I wish to edit and select it again.

The questions are: Is this something new or was changed? Is it something within my viewer (Firestorm - Latest Version)? How would I change it to return it to this (if possible)?

Often it wouldn't be too much of a problem to just find the object or item again to select it while the build tool menu is open but there are certain things especially small accessories that get lost within me or doesn't attach where it supposed to be and editing by going in from my inventory would be easier to find or click. I'm also aware of other methods to finding objects and items, I'm just wondering if this is something new or if I'm an idiot and forgot to change something in the settings.

Thank you so much for your help & time!~

Here are some pictures to in case you guys need it.

I don't know what is happening but it is NOT normal.  I just double checked in world.  For me right-clicking worn items in inventory opened up edit with the item selected.  At first I thought it might be a permission "feature" but No Mod items do not have the edit option when right-clicked in inventory to  start with.

 

By the way, what viewer are you using?

Well none of that happens for me in the latest Firestorm viewer. I have to right click and THEN choose edit to get an item to edit.  Likely this is something new in the Linden viewer?  There could also be an OPTION somewhere in the Preferences menu that controls this. I know not what that might be :D.

Using the LL viewers, you could never fully edit an object in your inventory. You could always edit its name, description, permissions, for sale, stuff like that, but not fully edit it. You can still do all that by selecting Properties from the right-click menu. Perhaps, previously the edit came up but with limited editing options. Now it's all in Properties.

I knew it was weird! Maybe something is hinky with my viewer. I'm currently using Firestorm 5.0.1.52150

Right? I thought that's how it's suppose to be, right click item > edit > item open in build tool already selected and ready to edit. But somehow mine doesn't automatically get selected even though I opened it from the item. I'm using Firestorm too so...I have no idea what's going on...

Hmm, I wouldn't know. I never used LL viewers. I have always use Firestorm. But the problem isn't really about editing the item itself, since the item edits fine. It's just the initial right click to edit the item, the item doesn't get selected when I click edit. It opens a blank build tool and then I would have to select the item again to get it to show up.

Does that fix it?

Omg! >.< Thank you so much! You are a life savior! I have no idea why or how I change those settings. I can be a little loopy and absent minded sometimes! Along with a little short term memory loss... Again thank you so much!~
