Hi Carsten,

Mine is swapped too. We had a short time to prepare for siggraph and get 
all platforms working. Some inconsistencies remain at the moment.

I don't understand what you mean by Roll/Nick. The Nick part throws me 
off. And, my guess is that when you say very small amounts of transform, 
I perceive how difficult it can be to move the view when the axes are 
swapped. When the axes are oriented correctly, fly mode allows very nice 

In view dependent mode, do you mean object mode where the SN controls 
the selected object and the object moves on the same axis as the SN 
(independent of the view direction)?
