I’ve seen a number of plugins and other programs where, when a user calls a command, there’s a panel that will show sliders and text entry windows allowing for parametric adjustment during a preview phase, before executing a command.
Any plans or discussion of adding this feature to Rhino 7? We already have popup windows for more complex commands like NetworkSrf, Loft, etc. A similar interface would be great for SubD, allowing previews of things like number of subdivisions in each direction when creating a primitive.
It would also be great for previews to be WYSWYG, rather than appearing as overlayed wireframes as is often the case in Rhino.
As for my the suggestion that it be possible to opt to view these things in a panel rather than a popup, the main advantage would be to keep viewport screen real estate static.
