Lindal Kidd has an article up titled FLASH! Fine Hover Adjustments Return! Basically, she says Wow! Then points us to Inara’s blog where Inara has posted: Avatar Hover Height reaches release viewer. Inara is pointing out that the RC Hover Viewer version 22.214.171.1249635 was promoted to the status of being the main/default viewer.
Fortunately Inara covers how to use the feature and a bit of the history leading up to it. So, I won’t be writing that up. For the TL:DR peeps the short story is: once you have the new viewer, right-click your avatar and select Hover Height. Then adjust.
I seem to remember the adjustment will only last for the secession. But, that may have changed as the last time I paid much attention was early in the development stage.
UPDATE: Oh….. the Linden announcement is here: Now Available: Hover Height Improvemen
