Topic: Blender GUI is horrible

Blender's UI has improved a lot. I've started with older versions and, like any app I've started learning in the past, it's no easy task. I can model just about anything in Blender, well, it takes time when it comes to fairly complex objects, of course. So you really need to put your mind to it if y...

Why do you assume I'm not using shortcuts?

Told ya, these are the kinds of receptions you'd receive when you post something like this. My suggestion was to learn scripting so you don't have to bother anyone.

You know what, if you have time you might want to come up with a mockup like the one you posted. This time place those icons where they should belong like where the arrows are pointing to in my image. In the translate bar you might accommodate three to four icons : GRAB, ROTATE, SCALE, ORIGIN ICONS....

You don't have to come up with a poll whether users like icons or not. I'm certain that many would express their dislike over icons. These people act like they know everything, know what I mean? They're smartas***. ;-) I don't mean the devs. Users basically. You don't need to subract anything. The k...

Replacing text with icons don't hurt in some cases. As you know this is a very contentious issue among users. Many are strongly against icons. I don't know why. I am in favor of them in some cases like what the image below says. I'm still finding time to learn scripting in Blender 2.5. And the first...

Speaking of which, feel free to try my own custom rightclick menu HERE. It may not have exactly what you want, but it could help you learn how to make your own with Python. To install, just place the PY file in the Addons folder and enable it from User Preferences, its called "3DView: Super Menu" :...

Thanks, Nik! These things you've written here are all I needed FOR NOW. Of course, there will be other concerns as I move along and would surely notice more short cuts would be extremely helpful. So I'll be back! ;-) As a side note, we're really not doing this to make Blender behave completely the s...

Let me clear it up. My desired configuration would be: 1. Select with LMB = done in the User Pref>Input 2. Assign the set 3d cursor to Ctr+Shift+LMB = User Pref>Input>3d View>Global 3. LMB Click (NOT RMB) anywhere in the 3d View deselects current selection = User Pref>Input>3d View>Object Mode and M...

Yeah, man, the possibilites are overwhelming and I've got to digest them in small increments. There is a slight problem with my desired configuration, though. The LMB border select or lasso select can't be added because of the conflict with the LMB click-drag, which grabs the object or element and m...

Yes! I finally did it with that tiny little "VIEW3D_MT_Space_Dynamic_Menu". Thanks! So now I've started using 1. LMB for normal selections in the User Preferences. 2. I also found a preset assigning the LMB for click-drag select (border/lasso); 3. Where the cursor is now assigned to Ctrl+Shift+LMB 4...

I've seen that link, but thanks, anyway. I've managed to assign the RMB on 3dview to the spacebar popup menu. I'd appreciate it if you could just provide some code on how to call the DYNAMIC SPACEBAR MENU ADD-ON. If not, I'd have to just wait till there's a way to do it in the User preferences. Anyw...

remap right-click mouse button

I apologize if this has been posted before. I've been trying to make the transition from right-click to left-click use of the mouse buttons now that all these things are possible. How do I assign the right-click to the add-on dynamic spacebar menu popup when right-clicking anywhere on 3dview? Thanks...
