Looking for something similar to NuLOOQ Tooldial software

    I found the NuLOOQ Tooldial software very useful. Unfortunately, it's
    discontinued, and doesn't seem to work with the new Mac Leopard OS X.

    Does anyone know of similar tools for the mac?

    It's a programmable popup menu (arranged in concentric circles), so that you
    can access commonly used commands and tools quickly from the vicinity of the
    cursor.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Kaz,
    Are you sure it has been discontinued? At:

    http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/productivity_tools/nulooqtooldial.html

    They do not mention that it has been.

    Requirements:

    Mac OS X 10.4 or later

    That does not necessarily rule out Leopard. Are you sure it will not
    work?

    I was hoping to hear about alternatives too, although personally I
    don't want another piece of hardware. I would like to see PS do
    something like Maya where the user has a distance menu system for
    beginning users and a marking menu option for advanced users.
    I am surprised there are not more options - maybe it's a patent thing.

    Hi KW,
    Do you remember the name? Since you mentioned it I had another look
    around but didn't find anything. At least I looked here:

    http://www.thepluginsite.com/resources/freeps.htm
    http://www.supershareware.com/get/contextual-menu-plugin.html
    http://www.fileheap.com/software/contextual_menu_plugin.html

    I can't speak for the OP but because PS menus and hotkeys are so well
    laid out that unless the plug-in worked exactly like Maya's marking
    menus then it would not be worth it - and I definitely do not what
    another piece of hardware. I would like it to be developed by Maya,
    supported and supplied by Wacom and endorsed by Adobe - oh yes, and be
    free:)

    Sounds cool but CS3 remains out of reach.

    Thanks

    So ignore the options you don't need.

    I don't use Lightwave or Poser, and most of my textures are
    procedural, so for the projects I am working on CS2 is fine. I am
    hoping to skip 3 but that may change.

    I did some searches and couldn't find anything....

    At this point, the most promising thing may be to create your own plugin or
    script for Photoshop.

    There are some reference PDFs that come with Photoshop on script writing,
    but I need to figure out how to access the tools and the menus using
    Javascript or Applescript...

    I'll ask that in a new thread.

    I have a huge file of add-ons and I guess I

    never saved it b/c I wasn't interested in changing the menus, for me it's
    fine as is

    I looked and couldn't find it either sorry but it was posted in this NG
    awhile back

    I did download and save a few things I never installed but thought I might
    find use for at later time
    (irfranview, noise reducing plug-in etc) but couldn't find the menu enhancer
