I don’t post often so anybody here does even remember me?
I have some little ideas and suggestions about the UI of Blender 2.5x
- I would like to see the file browser as a floating window, like the User Prefs. I think it would be a more usual way to load and save things (like every other soft does)
Also, I noticed that on OSX (yeah Mac user), it is impossible to change the size of the window (no handle on the bottom right…)
- I would like to see the Transform Orientations menu (from the 3d view) be a little different. Right now it has a roll menu to change the orientation, I think it would be better to have the different options shown directly, like the the Transform Orientation panel from 2.49, because this is a 1 clic menu, which is better when you have to change the orientation a lot of time when posing characters or modeling things.
Also, is there a way to lock the orientation per object or per bone? like locking the left hand IK bone with the global orientation and locking the head bone with normal orientation.
- I would like to see the 3d view lighting (User Prefs) like the 2.49 with the 3 little spheres to choose the orientation of the lights, because now, the new way is a little confusing.
Also, I think this would appears on the right menu of the 3d view. So you can change the lighting without opening the User Prefs.
- I would like to be able to change the background color directly from this menu, on the 3d view too. Sometimes it is useful, at least for me. And maybe add an option to show the World color (gradient or image, if it is possible).
That’s it for the moment. I probably have more ideas and suggestions, I’ll probably remember later.
