Not able to select bones (to change vertex group) when weight painting

Hi,

I encountered a little problem with this awesome tool.

When I am in weight paint mode and using bforartists default user settings, I cannot select a bone in my armature without having to first change to pose mode and select another bone then go back into weight paint mode again.

Since the LMB is used for PAINT instead of SELECT when in paint mode it seems impossible to select a bone.

In blender this was done with RMB, but RMB is mapped to navigating the view in bforartists default user settings. Is there another way of selecting a new bone while in weight paint mode? Is there a keyboard shortcut (or possible to map one) that solves this issue?

(As a side note: blender also suffer from this fenomen if you change the settings so you select with LMB instead of RMB. It is a known bug in blender that noone seems to be interested to fix.)

Hi Hinny,

Hi Hinny,

Yes, obviously you cannot do both with the same action, select and paint. But the solution is easy. To select a new bone for weightpainting, hold down ctrl, then click at your bone Smile

Hope that helps Smile

Kind regards

Reiner
