ok this is settled

<RR2DO2> ah
<RR2DO2> tell em to use ctrl+alt+click
<RR2DO2> or setup classic key mode in preferences
<RR2DO2> at least I think it's ctrl+alt
<RR2DO2> lemme see
<RR2DO2> (always do it blindly)
<RR2DO2> ctrl+alt yes
<TTimo> why was this changed
<TTimo> worse, why was the default changed
<ydnar> tbf, selecting a single brush in a func_group lends itself to 
<ydnar> or waiting a year to undo said fuckup
<X-Man> Hehe.
<RR2DO2> depends what you mean with defaults
<RR2DO2> it's a preference anyway
<TTimo> this is good reason, but I'm not sure that justifies changing 
the default way key bindings are working
<RR2DO2> use paint select in camera view: yes/no/yes(classic)
<RR2DO2> reason: it makes more functionality accessible faster
<TTimo> ok so you are only talking about camera view, right ?
<RR2DO2> 2d view is using the same selection code
<TTimo> ah
<ydnar> RR2DO2: it is?
<leaf> ydnar: it is a low level library, it's like directdraw
<ydnar> leaf, forget it
<leaf> ydnar: I've forgotten what I knew about 'it'.
<RR2DO2> ydnar: yes, same low level handlers
<RR2DO2> based on drag.cpp
<ydnar> I just tried to select a func_group in 2d, and only got one brush
<ydnar> which was nice
<RR2DO2> quite useful actually
<TTimo> which was 'not the expected behaviour'
<ydnar> that too :)
<RR2DO2> anyway, you can move it back to the old mode if you want to
<TTimo> it's VERY annoying when it's 'not the expected behaviour' and 
you don't know how to make it work
<TTimo> yeah, provided you know how to
<ydnar> Why not make old style the default
<RR2DO2> I documented it in my changelog :)
<TTimo> I'm happy to apply your patches blindly
<ydnar> and make a big notice in the readme about the new functionality?
<TTimo> but that's the kind of stuff we get .. that's pretty much 
inevitable anyway
<RR2DO2> it's a sideeffect of ETG's code that is already in 1.3 anyway
<RR2DO2> so...
<TTimo> ah?
<RR2DO2> yes
<TTimo> oh yeah
<RR2DO2> the paint select is a fixed/updated backport of the 1.3 code
<TTimo> paint select was initially ETG's, and you modified it, right ?
<RR2DO2> yup
<TTimo> k
<RR2DO2> without my changes classic mode wasn't even an option anymore :)
<TTimo> lol
*** Signoff: inolen (Ping timeout)
<TTimo> well now that they know about the new mode, they're gonna use 
new mode
<TTimo> classic mode should have been the default though
<TTimo> (for 1.2 - makes sense to have default different in a 1.3)
<TTimo> ok then all good

>The func_group abaility no longer works.  If you select a number of brushes and choose "func_group" it will give these brushes the func_group key in their entity windows, but the brushes will still only be selectable individually.  You cannot select the group of brushes as a whole.

>Selected a group of brushes individually and then right mouse clicked and selected func_group from the menu.  I then tried to select the group.
