Here are a 2 things that would be nice / cool for the coders to consider. I am a programmer (unfortunately with not enough time to join the blender development ...right now
) and they don't seem like extrememly hard things to implement (Although I have not looked at the source code yet, so I may be talking out my wazoo)
If I have either missed them or they are dumb ideas, feel free to flame me.
1. Now that there is a right click menu in text editor, could 'execute script' be added to that menu?
2. Dialog box for save before quitting. I know this is almost as bad as undo, but most pieces of software do this and it becomes like second nature to get a chance to save before quitting.
I agree, and Iwould think that these would both be easy to impliment, and not bloat etc.
You have my vote.
both seam like swell idea's to me..
#1 might be OK, but I actually don't like #2.
I like most parts of the Blender interface the way it is, and actually would be sorry to see it become more newbie-friendly.
Seriously, a lot of the time, I'm glad
that Blender doesn't have a save before exit dialog.
-Just my opinion-
re. #2, Blender saves automatically at every quit. Look for the file quit.blend (in your temp directory I think).
huh..?!... no quit.blend files for me at least. I can't find anything like that, just the usual 76354.blend stuff.
Anyhow I'm a little against the dialog at quit too. One of the more irritating things about win-style apps is their questioning of everything. If I want to quit, I really do want to quit =) No questions, please. Of course this isn't that bad - I can see it could be usefull, so maybe it could again be an option.
I like both ideas. As far as number two goes, the dialog box could pop up the first time you run the app with a checkbox for "Don't ever ask me this again."

This feature could end up being more trouble then its worth.
My latest project was 15 meg in filesize, If I was working off a zip disk, rewriteable cdrom or slow network blender would: a) Take ages so save the file that I have already saved anyway or b) Run out of space on the filesystem.
