shelf button for edit pivot
I use the edit pivot function a lot (the one that's found in the move/rotate/scale options window). It's a lot like the slide edge function but the edit pivot lets you select the specific component to line up to and it brings back your gismo. It's a pain to always have to bring up the options window every single time, so I'm looking to make a shelf button for it. Playing with the mel script that fires off, I can make a button that sets the pivot a specific direction, but I haven't been able to find a way that puts me into the component selection mode that pressing the edit pivot button does. Any ideas?
