Yes I realized that

Yes I realized that afterward, in my config,none of them was selected so if I recall correct, it didnt worked until I select one of the supported snap types.

Anyway, I will try the new version as soon as I can,

well done and thank you.

Masquerade thanks for

Masquerade thanks for comment they are welcome.
You are mistaken while thinking that for the proper work vertex snap is needed. You can use any type of snaps (vertex,pivot,face...) but it is important that it will be 3D.
I have taken into consideration your suggestion and fixed script. Now snap mode and type restored after straighten. When straighting begins snap mode changes to active and snap type to 3D.
Also this beta includes other changes:
Added restrictions of straight. Use SHIFT key to config it.

Thanks Royal Ghost, It is a

Thanks Royal Ghost, It is a very nice tool. and turns out it is very useful.

Though in a rush, It took me a while to understand that it uses 3d snap and vertex snap must be checked in 3d snap settings. (I realized that it was already written in the comments after I figured it out myself) It also turns off snap mode even if you are already working with 3d snap. I myself not a frequent snap user while editing, but it may be nicer if it looks for the current snap settings and options, checks true the vertex option,stores it , checks true the vertex option and restores back after the straightening.

Dont get me wrong, I just try to help you fool-proofing that nice script, thank you.

IN_human, снап

IN_human, снап включается то скриптом автоматом, а его тип удобнее самому выбирать.
Насчет normalize, уже давно сам хочу сделать но все никак не сяду :)
Пасиб за +1 ;)

В некоторых ситуациях бывает полезней PolyBoost, тот только с лупами дружит.

По поводу снапов - их помоему надо через скрипт какраз включать, по фейсам и по вершинам.

Заодно подсмотрю как мышу скриптовать )))

Хотелось бы иметь опциональную возможность задавать рёбрам равную длину.

С нетерпением жду инструметов EdgesAlongSpline, EdgesParallel2Surface и EdgesTangentially2Faces )))

abyjoe, you must use 3D snap

abyjoe, you must use 3D snap to get right point's coordinates
