Oh, none. Again, I brought up the panels and the render view to illustrate the point that blender is not truly non-overlapping. I think the preferences would do well to be in their own window which could be summoned when needed.

OS X File Icon

I'm not sure if this is where to post it, but: As of 2.41 I noticed that mid-size file icons were not displaying correctly (there was a dark line at the top of the "paper"). The problem is not too noticeable, but I figured I could fix it easily and submit it for others. If anybody would like the ico...

You're probably right, that is the only reasonable alternative (users shouldn't have to be required to click on the menu header again, or hit escape, for example). However, wouldn't it be possible (even if perhaps not easy) to only accept events within menus if they're activated? This way, clicking ...

I was just mentioning the panels to show that blender's UI is already not entirely non-overlapping. I don't particularly mind them, although I do dislike that at times you can accidentally click "through" them.

I'm not exactly sure what you're asking, though. Do you think you could elaborate?

OS Services

I would like very much to see blender utilize default OS services wherever possible, but especially when it comes to working with files. I personally much prefer Mac OS X's open and save dialogs, and I suspect I may not be the only one. This may not be the easiest thing to implement, mind you, since...

User Preferences

I'm well aware of the blender paradigm of non-overlapping windows, but I believe that in the case of the user preferences window this template has been implemented at a too high cost. In my opinion, said window should be split into two components. The first would be the header portion, which ought t...

Menu Behavior

I have a small handful of suggestions for the way I believe (or, expect, rather) menus should work: I. I'm not too fond of the delay experienced when the mouse is moved from one menu to another adjacent one. The disappearance of the former menu and the appearance of the latter menu should effectivel...

In regard to my earlier post...10.4.1 seems to have fixed everything.

Does this mean, by the way, that Matt Ebb's new interface won't be in 2.37/2.4? I was desrious most for that feature.

My PowerBook's on 10.4, and the interface is painfully slow. Reducing the color to thousands helps some, but, there's still a noticeable lag. You'll probably need more information to figure out the problem, but I'm not sure exactly waht to give, so just let me know.

This new gizmo is really neat. I'm especially glad that it uses the LMB, too. At first I thought there was a bug while holding Shift, but then I realized that this is actually a feature. Very cool.

Thanks for the build.

Well, it launches, at least. I don't have time to test it, but it looks like everything went fine. So, thanks! I'm guessing you used the new Xcode build system. If so, can you tell me how you went about it? I'd like to start contributing builds as well. By the way, do you know if this has the new tr...

Thanks for the build. So far the new transform looks great. I love that the finer grid snap (shift-ctl) is now actually usable. Also, I'm really excited about the Xcode system. Keep up the good work, everyone.
