Toolbar ‣ Line Mask
This tool creates a Mask across one side of a drawn line. The affected area is visualized by the shaded side of the line.
Use the tool by:
Orient the 3D Viewport to define the direction in depth.
LMB and hold while moving the cursor to define direction of the line mask.
Adjust the operation with extra Controls shortcuts.
Release LMB to confirm.
Hold Ctrl to subtract from the mask instead.
- Flip F
Changes the side of the line that the tool creates a mask.
- Snap Ctrl
Constrains the rotation of the line to 15 degree intervals.
- Move Ctrl-Spacebar
Reposition the line.
- Front Faces Only
Only creates a mask on the faces that face towards the view.
- Limit to Segment
The affected area will not extend the length of the drawn line. This helps defining a smaller area instead of extending the line infinitely long.
