New wireframes are HUGE improvement, well done!
Still not quite perfect but it’s a massive step in the right direction. With some tweaks to the theme, grid colour, x-ray mode, etc, I was able to get the wireframe mode to a point where it’s good enough for modelling and for me to say I could probably switch to Blender 2.8 for production work now.
I hope the devs don’t feel like we’re being too hard on them, I know they were really trying hard to come up with something new, beautiful and functional with Blender 2.8’s viewport, and a huge number of their new ideas have been fantastic and a massive improvement, but it’s inevitable that if you try enough new ideas, eventually one of them doesn’t quite work as well as hoped. It happens, we still absolutely love you devs, you all do amazing work and you put up with us and listen to us.
(Also would it be possible to get the option to render wireframes back in Blender 2.8 now? Perhaps in the workbench engine? I know it sounds like a useless feature to some but I kinda need it, my job actually mandates it… it’s dumb I know but the clients demand it and my employer won’t accept ‘Sorry my software can’t do that anymore’ for an answer, and I really don’t want to have to switch to Cycles and use a wireframe shader just to mimic what I could do with Blender 2.79’s OpenGL render option. Pretty please!)
