is there any way to actually turn off the selection beam? i have all the right boxes checked in the Firestorm preferences to not show the beam, and in my viewer that seems to be what is what but when viewing from an alt's viewer particles appear around the item i've selected. no beam from my avatar, just a circular pattern of particles at the terminal point. like, when you right click to open the context menu. doesn't seem to happen when selecting anything on avatars, just objects.

Have you gone into the advanced menu?  Ctrl+Alt+D then-

already done. that setting turns off the beam fer sure, but not the little flurry of particles circling where you touch. i don't see that on my viewer, but on alt's viewer, oopsy. where's @Whirly Fizzle when you need her?

I do not believe there is a way to turn off those little swirlies unfortunately... I wish there was - so I could more easily hide my evil shenanigans 

muahaha

Those particles are generated in the onlooker's viewer, so it depends on THEIR settings, not yours.

hmmm, vely intelesting. so one could capture and list left clicks and/or right clicks within a given range? statistical analysts would be all over that tech.
