Why can't I use the new 7.6 tools in model mode instead of the realtime workspace view? Becuase the realtime rendered view runs a little to slow on my machine.

Have you adjusted the File/HW Settings down?

It's not as 'pretty' but it runs faster.

Try DX7 w/ textures, turn off shadowing, reduce texture resolution, etc.
Made a big difference here.

It's because the Model mode is the old code, effectively tS6.6 embedded as a giant plugin. The workspace is tS7.6 in effect, with all the new code, and so all the new tools.

A graphic card upgrade would be very inexpensive these days, with $30 or $40 buying a card that would do well, and $100 buying one that will make tS fly. If not an option (eg a laptop, or any expenditure is impossible) then as space says, turning down the display mode in the HW Settings should help.

BTW with the $30/$40 card, the workspace real-time view will update and handle MUCH faster than the Model view, handling scenes or models that will bring Model side to a jumpy, sticky, 2fps halt :)

My fairly crummy laptop can run workspace OK on the DX7 setting.

As Spacekdet said, not as pretty but definitely functional...:)
