IzzyMap in Isadora 3 - creating extra points now uses Cmd instead of Option


  • Hello Everyone,

    This may have been answered already on the forum but I was unable to find.  In previous izzy version I was able to hold down alt and click on my shape in izzy map to create new points (same as outlined in the manual).  However, I am attempting to do the same now and each time I try to to create a new point, instead of the point being created, instead my cursor changes to a hand and magnify symbol - has anyone else had the same issue?  I have tried alt, command, controlto create the points but none of these options seem to work and I am unable to create any new points...any help with this would be hugely appreciated!  

    Thanks everyone!

    1.  It's Cmd+left-click on Mac
    2. It can only be done with a Composite Map slice


  • Hi Thanks for getting back to me!

    It seems that Option still doesn't work, but it does work with command...is that correct??  Also, shouldn't I be able to add extra points on the output too in composite or only in Input?

    I goofed it's Cmd.

    No, I just checked Isadora 2 and it's the same.

    only in Input?  

    Yes, I just checked Isadora 2 and it's the same.


  • OK must I be going mad! thank you so much for confirming this!!

    You guys are great! :)
