Toggle between "Instance" and "Frame" mode on light table

Post by Joost » 03 Mar 2020, 10:21

As far as I know, there is no built in shortcut for Light Table mode, but there is a workaround - long time ago I have created a panel with 2 buttons (or was it given to me by someone here?) - each opens a Light Table with a different mode setting. You can attach then a shortcut to each of those buttons. You can also create your own buttons - if you edit my buttons, you will see that there are 2 commands there: 1 - Open Light Table panel, and 2 - Grab light table (this will grab the current state of the light table including the Mode setting).

This might do it as an Embedded George Script...

Code: Select all

parse result d LTMode d

IF CMP(LTMode, "instance")
	tv_LightTableMode INTERVAL IMAGE

tv_warn "LTMode = " LTMode  // delete this line after testing
