Small UI tweaks
« on: October 24, 2018, 22:15:37 pm »
I would propose few and (hopefully!) simple UI tweaks to improve the user experience:

  • Full path in the window's title
  • The file dialog that opens when you right-click on a MOP and select Produce gcode, doesn't remember the last location and always point to the same folder of the cb file
  • As someone already said, it would be nice to have the object's extrema in the status bar, so when I select something I immediately know its dimensions
  • Add z coordinate of the mouse, especially useful when the view is XZ or YZ
  • In the property window disable (or just fade out a bit) the parameters that are ignored due to others. Example: "Start Corner: Corner to start profiling. Used in Horizontal and Vertical 3D profiling methods only.". Hence if I select a waterline method this item should be disabled.
