I only check these forums sporadically, so this is a surprisingly early freeze and disappointingly tight deadline.
So is any feedback futile now?
I still think linking toolbars is a step back because for example, in Rhino 7 it’s completely clear from where something is linked:
But in Rhino 7, I can’t figure out how to get to that information:
So, again now I’m trying to recreate my Rhino 7 layout in WIP and immediately I see the first bug:
Why do you show drag handles when the toolbars are locked?
Ok, on to the next steps. In V7 you could go to the above Toolbars settings panel and not only see where your settings file is read from, but also what it contains and what was in use:
In WIP you have to find an existing toolbar, find it’s small cogwheel symbol, and only then can you see what your toolbar file contains. Your added toolbar then becomes docked in a place you don’t want, so you must drag it out of that panel, and then drag it to where you want it. So, WIP has two added steps and decreased usability overall. And this is now frozen? Very disappointing.
Also, I swear others have pointed out the incredibly small and really ugly drop zones for toolbars already:
Look at how big and nice they are in V7:
(Also, WIP freaks out when you grab a screenshot in the middle of this drag operation, while V7 exits it gracefully.)
And when you drop your second toolbar on there, the entire thing jumps away from its place forcing your to resize not only your already placed panel, but the new one as well:
Anyway, I was at least this time able to recreate my V7 layout so at least it seems there’s functional parity but the UX of setting this up has gotten worse, not better!
Oh, the automatic inversion of colors on even user created icons is nice, although naturally it doesn’t work in all cases but still. And the collapsing of the sidepanels did work nicely, even after adding my own second side panel, which was also nice.
