After spending a fair amount of time away from blender development (masters, work, dancing, lack of a linux development machine, etc...) II have decided to get back into it again. However this will only be a small feature and not aiming for any large features that take up most of my time (like the ocean simulator/plugin system that I tried earlier!).
I have decided to focus on a feature that I find to be somewhat annoying, this is when a panel is minimised horozontally you only get one character of the active tab being shown which is not descriptive enough.
I have found in code where it is:
Code: Select all
void ui_draw_panel(uiBlock *block)
1. See whether this is a good feature to improve on; and
2. do some brainstorming to see how best to implement this.
I have decided not to commit myself to coding until I have had an 'online chat' with someone in the blender dev team regarding (even at a superficial level) the two steps mentioned above.
