It can be really handy when painting weight maps in tight areas. It not used very often but if you need to access a specific vertex normal or color a vertex for any reason thats the way to do it, prelighting might be one example.

dubai3d ..it can be removed but its extremely complicated to explain. to be honest i wouldn't attempt it unless you are very very proficient in MEL because you need to manually edit the dagMenuProc.mel script and its a very long and complicated script that sets a lot of the context sensitive menus.
i don't have to tell you that if you mess the script up you would have to reinstall Maya to reinstate it.

If you put a copy of it into your user script folder (My Documents\maya\scripts) then you can mess around with it. But editing the original is just asking for trouble as you said.

hey im glad i looked at this thread i would never have thought of using it for weight maps, handy id ur missing a certain face or something, but could someone explain how to keep the wieght map tool open with the vertex face selection, if the model is in object mode then i can start to paint the weight maps, but as soon as i change the select to vertex face the weight map tool deselects
