Ctrl-Shift-ing for BoDs

    When I want to get BoDs, it's not enough that the npc is visible or shows up under ctrl-shift.. in order to pull up the npc menu I am forced to right-click (close) all of the static items that also show up under ctrl-shift. Only when the npc's ctrl-shift bar is not touching any other ctrl-shift bars am I able to drag their bar.

    This is a pet peeve!

    You can change the Object Handles to filter out certain things. Your choices are:

    Dynamic Objects (i.e. everything not part of the scenery)
    NPC Vendors
    Mobiles (players, MPCs, animals, and monsters)

    If you're using one of our custom mods, you'll see a small bar with one of those options listed, you can use the contect menu on the bar to swap between the various filters.

    Makes things a LOT easier.

    But that will mess with the other aspects of my game yes?

    I just want any left-click on any ctrl-shift handle to pull up the appropriate menu.

    I know there are work-arounds.. I want a fix.
  4. You can use a script macro command to turn on just the NPC Object handles:

    script SystemData.Settings.GameOptions.objectHandleFilter = SystemData.Settings.ObjectHandleFilter.eNPCFilter
    script UserSettingsChanged()

    then a script to turn object handles back to everything once again:

    script SystemData.Settings.GameOptions.objectHandleFilter = SystemData.Settings.ObjectHandleFilter.eDynamicFilter
    script UserSettingsChanged()

    It's very fast and should do what you want. If you want to filter other object handles, the command scripts are on this page:
