LetterRip, I have an opinion, and I did express it, but if you read my posts, you may see that I did not demand anything of anyone. Should you actually read my posts, you, as well as every one else, can plainly, see that I never mentioned anything about wanting the GUI customizable. The other develo...

As far as the interface design is concerned, there's not much there, but I did see a named-layer mod that showed layer names in the help balloons. There was a mention of replacement icons. Someone was worried about the icons looking cartoon-like, even cartoon icons would be better than ones that nee...

I didn't imply that the changes to the interface were easy, but important. The "future" may bright, but the word "future" is nice and open-ended word, suggesting no definite plans. If you do have plans to change the interface, and you are still tacking things onto the old interface, then it appears ...

jesterKing, Thanks for chiming in. In as much as I am sure that changing the interface will be complicated, setting it back five years, seems indicative that the user interface is a low priority. In that time, many new features will be added to the present interface. Many users will try to use that ...

The, "not a programmer" thing doesn't have a lot of weight. [I would not attempt to layout a development environment for programming.] I haven't programmed in years, but there's a lot of icons to be made, and the source could be made in .svg. Work was done on the Gimp after it was Slashdotted. Hmm. ...

If you look at my posts, in fact, all the posts have positive things written about Blender. I would not be using my time if Blender didn't have virtue and potential. The hard work is already done. Is not Bender complex 3D programming deserving of a better interface? In my opinion, the Gimp's user in...

Re: I want you to!

...A new UI does not have to replace the current UI... Not in every case, but a lot a work would needs to be done to move Blender to anyone's GUI standards: Windows, Mac, Gnome, KDE. I am sure some, or most of the 3D widget system could be saved, but almost everything seen in 2D could use some work...

I want you to!

Fuctionally, Blender is becoming quite the powerful 3D program, but the interface upsets me. I know there's a good 3D drawing engine in here, somewhere. To even open the File dialog, brings saddness to my heart. There's nothing wrong with trying to do things differently, but the file dialog is overs...
