Sometimes the message in the status area (lower left) leaves me uncertain whether a command worked. For example, an unsuccessful Join may leave the message
Creating meshes... Press Esc to cancel
in the status area. The history, however, has
Command: Join Surface join in progress... Press Esc to cancel Unable to join surfaces or polysurfaces. Creating meshes... Press Esc to cancel
I wish I saw
Unable to join surfaces or polysurfaces.
as the final status.
PS I’m a brand new user, so not used to the interface.
