I just finished teaching a class to a few 3rd year design students. I always love to see their reactions to tools that I've become so familiar with and take for granted. I also find their fresh eyes alert me to mini-bugs or interface issues that I've learnt to accept.
I thought I'd share a few here:
- The ability to import multiple display modes would be great. At the moment you can only select one .ini file at a time.
- The Object Properties Panel that controls Details is different whether you select a detail or double-click in a detail. It would seem that these should work the same way? The behaviour when you select the Detail seems more intuitive: being able to change the scale in the Panel ranter than use command line is quicker
- It would be great to be able to lock the 3 axis in the BoxEdit Panel. For example if you had a box come in at 1x2x3 and you want to make the long side 5, you could just type 5 (with lock on) and the other dims scale accordingly. This behaviour is already in the Texture Mapping repeat tile area.
I'm going to see them again in 24hrs so it would be great to get a response before I see them next. I've already gloated how responsive the McNeel team is on this forum.
