High Priority Bugs


4.3 Projects

  • UI: Render SVG Files for UI Icons #121718
    • Now code approved. What should be considerations for go/no go. Needs testing on slow computers.
    • Confirmed works with large versions, like File Browser. Should work for confirmations.
    • Sculpt brush previews currently using the folder
    • We probably want to minify the SVGs (removes Inkscape document colors, grids, etc) and also include the SVGs in the executable. Harley will try this.
  • UI: Screen Area Docking #104665
    • Changes to interaction and feedback have been made. Captures are updated.
    • Next step might instead be an experimental feature for testing, only extending join with docking. Will have to see how much complexity it adds.
  • UI: Improved Window Titles #111495
    • Comes handy with above.
    • We do like this, will move forward. There could be simplification on how the names are obtained.
  • WIP: UI: Bidirectional Text and Complex Shaping #104662
    • Hoping to be “Experimental” feature in 4.3, optionally for all text output. Non-experimental later would most likely be for complex and RTL only.
