Thinking this through: if I click on a named selection and relocate the gumball, the next time I click on the named selection, the gumball should still be where I relocated it.
I realize as I’m typing this that there’s an issue here about flexibility, though. What should happen if, after relocating the gumball, I set it to “align to world”, or another one of the fixed settings? How would I be able to get the gumball back to the position I’d previously relocated it to?
One thought is: add one line to the gumball menu, below “align to cplane” “align to world” “align to object” and “align to view” that places the gumball where it was most recently relocated to. What to name that menu item? I don’t know. I can’t come up with a short enough name off the top of my head. And of course, this is a broader feature suggestion than just for named selections. I’d love to see it, and see it work for subselections, but I realize that’s a big ask.
For named selections, which already have sublayer-like folders for subobjects and objects, adding another sublayer with an on/off toggle for a relocated gumball might work from a UX perspective.
