Build Edit Mode

Build Edit Mode is typically used in worlds where you are a building and need elevated permissions to interact with it

  • Hold Both Controllers near your head, and 2x press the Context Menu

UI Edit Mode

UI Edit mode is used when you wanted to Remove/Change Facets, or manually adjust a Tooltips position.

  • On Index/Oculus hold one of the dedicated userspace buttons (that opens/closes the dash) and double tap the other.
  • On Vive/WMR, hold down both menu buttons at the same time until both rings fill.

UI Edit mode is also useful to adjust the grip position of an object you expect to hold in your hand.

  1. Enable UI edit mode.
  2. Grab or equip the object in one hand. You should see a ghost robot hand interposed on the hand you're gripping with.
  3. With the other hand, grab the object and adjust its position and rotation until it looks good.
  4. You can repeat the process with the other hand.
  5. Once you've adjusted the grip positions, you can exit UI Edit mode and save the object to your inventory. The grip positions are valid for your avatar. Using the object with another avatar or for another user will require altering the grip pose again.

Switch Between Desktop/VR

  • Currently Neos supports the functionality of switching between Desktop Mode and VR, to do this press F8 on your keyboard.
