Standard 3D Manipulators (Trans, Rotate, Scale)

Addition of standard 3D manipulators (Trans, Rotate, Scale)

GoZ Needs To Respect Polygroups

GoZ Needs To Respect Polygroups - Currently when you use GoZ it destroys your polygroups. To work around this I have my model stored in OBJ format with all the polygroups. After I use GoZ I have to store a morph target, import the OBJ and then switch to the stored morph target state.

Import By UV instead Of Vertex Order

This will allow you to import in blendshapes/morph targets and not have to worry about the vertex order. I specifically want to used it to break my heads off of my full body models, sculpt on them (for a head only sculpt pipeline) and then re incorporate the heads back onto the full bodies.

Mesh Insert Tools With Local Translation

If the Mesh Insert Tools would retain some sort of local translation to them, I could easily make accurate mechanical parts, and parts that need to fit inside or outside of one another.
