Thank you very much for the 2 click opposite mode! No more searching for off-screen faces to twist.

You could also make it so that if you click the same 2C twice you get a rotation similar to the MC4D 1-click. Useful for opposite mode, or when finding two places to click is a pain

For a programming challenge (but I’m sure you’ve got better things to do) you could make a 3C mode. It would work just like the 2C mode if you add a constraint: all stickies on the clicked face must remain on that face. Like in opposite mode, an adjacent face is twisted. This allows the user to twist a face as if it were a (n-1)D puzzle of a different projection.

thanks again!

If you check it, then macros will be performed without asking of reference stickers - program will find the best match for the current orientation of the camera with its orientation in the moment of macro recording start. Central face, main/secondary dimensions and their collinearity are invariants for the match (that is if you have recorded macro that did something with central face, you cannot apply it to the bottom face on the screen just by looking at it - you need to switch the center of the model). This function will work only for macros recording in the new version - old macros will continue to ask you about reference stickers. Function was not tested in 5D and 6D, so there may be some strange behavior. But in 7D it works fine :)
