Numeric values and middle mouse button on Wacom Intuos Jan. 12, 2018, 4:56 p.m.

Yes, the ill-behaved middle mouse ladder menus you've described have been an ongoing problem. Particularly on MacOS with multiple monitors, it seems. Houdini windows on a secondary display (the one without the Dock and menubar) seem more prone to the issue.

But at the moment, everything seems to be harmonious with Houdini 16.5.330, Wacom driver 6.3.27-2, and MacOS 10.13.2.

How to tell which Qt version is installed? Jan. 12, 2018, 4:45 p.m.

It's usually right up there at the top of the detailed info text:

Houdini FX Version 16.5.330

Platform:                 Darwin-17.0.0
Operating System:         Mac OS X Version 10.13.2 (Build 17C205)
Qt Version:               5.6.1

Wow, lovely work. Thank you for sharing.

For some reason the attribute wrangle “tentacle_points” fails to compile in 16.5.330 because of the line
float PI = 3.1415926535897932384;
Seems to work normally upon changing the variable name.

But that's the same way it's defined in the expression cookbook. Anyway, I'm going to have to spend some more time playing around with this neat system you've designed.
