    No. It's annoying and distracting. I'd rather use the wireframe views in Top, Front, and Side views.

    I remember accidentally doing this in one of my first Hammer projects and frantically hitting random keys to try and fix it.

    I've actually used it occasionally when I feel like optimizing my brushwork.

    Once or twice, but pretty much what Altaco said. I'm pretty good at anticipating what'll come of my brush work though these days.

    One annoying "hotkey" is x.. damn that key.
