see the lock icon in front of the auto cplane button
and The toggle between world and Cplane is not working, I changed the location of the Cplane, draw a line with Cplane on, start from 0, and the line starts on 0 from Cplane, then I toggle to world, do the same, but it still starts on 0 from Cplane.
oh wow, the look icon is its on interactive button… (left mouse click)…no need to use the right mouse menu.
it s a pity the status bar has no ( mouse - over - delayed ) tooltip as other buttons have.
the grafic / UI design of this specific 2 Status-Bar-Buttons (look + Text (Auto CPlane(Object)) is rare / unique (?) in the interface … that s not very intuitive.
the lock should have at least its separate mouse over behaviour.
there should be tooltips in the statusbar
I would prefere a divided rectangle / 2 separate Status Buttons, maybe with less / zero space.
improved to show 2 functionalities / 2 buttons.
(it s not a one-line layer-palette where columns do not have separators (what I also don t like))
The Auto CPlane needs to be on. On as in you have the Auto CPlane enabled, selected something, and the CPlane moved to what you selected. Then the Auto CPlane can be locked. Locked means when you deselect or select something else the Auto CPlane stays where it was automatically placed. If that’s not working it might be useful to see a screen recording of what you’re doing.
I think tooltips here are a good idea. Interesting the gumball seems to be the only button which has a tooltip currently. I opened the issue here for the Auto CPlane. I’m not sure how useful tooltips for the other buttons would be.
I’m not a huge fan of splitting them up like that. I think it shows the two as separate things whereas they’re linked and part of the same functionality. Maybe a border around the lock icon would work better. At some point I might have had that but there isn’t a ton of free space on the status bar to use.
We need to be able to create a plane from the selection. Finding a reasonable plane for a line is tricky. We could probably do a better job though. How do you expect the Auto CPlane to behave when you select a line?
For the Status bar please check section 8. World vs CPlane coordinates means is the coordinate in the World X,Y, Z space or the local X,Y, Z space defined by the CPlane. Think relative to the CPlane origin versus relative to the world.
That is completely undefined. You can have a construction plane that is perpendicular to a curve at a specific point on that curve. In addition to that point, you’d then also need to specify the direction of the X-axis.
