this had me thinking for a while. it would obviously already be a major step up in having it closer to the model and having it more convenient to work with, but here a few questions.
how would you implement such an additional canvas, since 4 viewports already take their places, thinking of it as a 4 view there will be one too much. and 4 view would be an important solution to provide a fast and native integration. how would you implement a 5th here anyway if not in there. or could you exchange one, possibly one which you dont use that often or would that not show up at all in 4 view?
i could also settle with having a 5 view in case of working with grasshopper.
any thoughts on that already?
and what may be equally if not more important, would that new viewport also behave like all the others, meaning that you could maximize it and switch to others with for example a middle mouse button macro?
i get the feeling that my initial “idea” did not launch a huge avalanche, maybe also because people got very much used to having a fiddly extra window blocking the view. i mean i have a 32 inch screen but grasshopper just never sits right.
at least for me, its not comfortable to work with the grasshopper canvas in its current “implementation” which is not an implementation at all to be frank. i know it came from the side as a plug in but since a new grasshopper version is cooking this may be hopefully the place to address it and have a serious thought or two.
