Hi Jiri,

As mentioned in our online reference guide:

"Edge Mode does not preview in viewports

To improve viewport performance edge trimming is calculated only at render time. This means the effects of the this mode will not be previewed in the viewports. However, previews can be enabled by holding down the left CTRL key and clicking on the Edge radio button."


Kind regards,

Thanks for answer, works great.

And I have one more question, is there a way how to tell how edge mode use?

I used some preset from FP to test new edge mode. Works great, but flowers was cutted in the middle, I think because of different matID on different polys of the same objects. :-(

No sorry, it's not possible to modify Edge mode from its default behaviour. It always identifies and exclude elements as adjacent faces with same mat ID.

I'm afraid there is not a simple way to implement other modes, at least without affecting the performance.

Will edge mode display in viewports be made accessible to us? In your video showing how to use the new options on a gravel path you say previewing has been turned on.

Would be great to have this in the actual release! When will it be?
Cheers,

this mode is resource hungry so default is disabled in viewport, but You can enable pressing "ctrl + click" on edge mode
