What very useful feature in SL or your viewer did you take forever to start using?

My recent addition is the Collapse button on the inventory menu. Saves a lot of scrolling up sometimes...

I still haven't gotten used to the idea that SL can be launched from a web page rather than the viewer

Outfits. I wrote a workable RLV folder quick change device years before and didn't make the jump until the Appearance thing had photos built in.

I still don't use outfits, I have hundreds of directories full of avatars already.

I just recently discovered teleport history.

It took me six years of tumbling from a great height after accidentally deleting a sky platform, before finally realising you could "lock" prims.

I think the delete all notices button is one of the best fairly recent additions to the viewer. I used to spend ages deleting group notices every time I logged on. Now it's all done with one click.

I wish they had "expand all notices" as well, so I could read through them quickly like I used to be able to, instead of having to click in two different places for each notice.

Finder search tool... helps me locate a vendor by creator or by product name in a busy Event or fair, Find object i misplaced at home or accidentally embedded into a wall, or my favorite, find out what other people have attached so i don't have to interact with them to figure out where they got their clothes/hair/outfit from. =)

Holding space!
More specifically, holding space while falling.


Also, admittedly:
It strangely took me a while until I started navigating/turning by holding leftmouse down on my avatar.


And, not me personally but in the case of way too many people in SL:

Only switched to visual outfit system 3 months ago. Didn't want to do it for the longest time because I already had so many folders and learning new things is icky and scary. Such a QoL change, should have done it years ago.

Under the Advanced Menu/Rendering Types and unchecking Avatars. This is a great tool for going to a super laggy event. Your computer no longer rezzes avatars and it makes everything load much faster. I then Cam shop (since I don't want to bump into the people I can no longer see )

Firestorms built in AO. I thought it'd be much harder to set up than it actually was.

Does this consume the usual 10L for taking snapshots?

To think you could have had a whole Happy Meal for that.


Or 1/5 of a mount in World of Warcraft.


Or 1/4 of a specialty costume in most other MMOs.
