Default Customizing maya

hello,

How do you customize maya for exemple to add a mirror_x, mirror_y and mirror_z script in the contextual menu (when you click the right mousebutton ), which is very, very handy...

thx.

See the documentation on creating Marking Menus. It's covered in the Essentials book. Basically you will want to create mel script for the actions. You do this by doing a mirror x for example, then copying that part of the script editor. Then you can access it for making your own Marking Menu

instructions:

for example for creating a shortcut for -x mirror funtion,

open the script editor, and then type
"waitCursor -state on; polyMirror -1 0 0 on; waitCursor -state off;"(without the quotation<"> marks)
and then highlight the script(above) and then with your middle mouse button drag it to the shelf...now you will se a new icon with "MEL" in the shelf...

how i got the script is pretty simply, i create an object and then i perform the function then i go to the script editor then i see the last function then i copy it... hope it helps...
