Thanks a lot for the tutorials, and the tool bar.

I have a tip (i don't know if for this topic or the tips one)
When you press both mouse buttons at the same (lbm and rmb)time it works like extrude (for faces, edges and vertex)also alike ctrl an lmb.
Also if you press any the lmb or the rmb in the same position is the same as space bar (to add)

Ps. what happend to the chat part in the tool bar?

Thanks! IE.

You're welcome!

Pressing both mouse buttons:
I didn't know that! Actually, it works consistently when you hold the LMB, then press the RMB. But, it seems that you have to re-press both buttons in that fashion for each extrusion. Interesting. Thanks!

LMB or RMB to show main menu:
Yes, that's true. You can control the amount of delay (before the menu displays) in the Preferences menu. Go to "View & Controls" and locate the "Toolbox click-hold delay" settings. You can set a custom delay for both buttons.

There's always something new to discover in Blender! :)

chat in toolbar:
I decided to remove the chat feature because it wasn't being used and it took up too much space on the toolbar. I think people prefer to use forums, irc, etc.

Thanks on the tip on the delay. For me sometimes that was a pain, specially trying to get use to the "mouse commands"

The tool bar is great. I recommended it a 100%

About a place that could be included in the blender search is it is the forum in spanish. Has been a great source for me.
And for the extras/scipts maybe this
Its one of my favorites scripts.

Keep the good work! IE.
