    I was doing it using the Mouse Button 5 on my mouse (aka Forward Browser Button)

    But since the last patch its not working and it is incredibly aggravating.

    Anyone know?

    *edit*

    not the paint, I know shift-p. I am refering to the blocks themselves!

    Spoonfed is talking about the feature where you could click mouse button 5 (or whatever it was) and you would autoselect the block you clicked on for further placing. It was not configurable which caused a secondary problem for some of us which used the same button for something else.

    Yes, thats it exactly. If I click MB5 it would select the block my current block was over. I kind of liked that feature.

    Its not working since the patch.

    I think he means eyedropper tool (pipette)

    This function actually existed in the game? I never knew. Basically it would cut out the need to open the G menu to pick a block if the block in question was already placed somewhere in the world space. You could just target it, press a key, and it would replace your current block selected in your hotbar. Similar to Minecraft in creative mode.

    Please tell me this actually exists in Space Engineers, it'd make building that much easier.

    It did exist, as a non-exposed feature, but it has been removed.

    Why on earth would it be removed. Very handy feature.

    Has this feature been reintroduced since it was taken out? It was damn handy and after recently returning to the game I am finding building to be a very tedious experience without this feature :(

    Anyone know if this feature is still somewhere in the game, or if the coming HUD revamp is going to address it?
