High Priority Bug Reports

In Review


  • UI Module Roadmap
    • Lots of progress and agreement. Harley probably in charge of organizing, editing, progressing tasks on the workboard.
  • Autofocusing of fields in Property Dialogs (Pablo’s example of SEQUENCER_OT_retiming_segment_speed_set)
  • Enums-as-search button proposal (eg might help with Remap Users)
  • Splash, Pablo wants changes for settings import
    • Remove What’s New, try adding a rule to separate sections
  • Small one-line confirmations: Title or Sentence Case?
    • Sentence case for one-line dialogs. But with terminating period, which is what we want for all message body text.
  • Confirm Areas requiring Zoom Control. “Sequencer and Movie Clip editors, maybe the Compositor if it has a backdrop” - Brecht
    • Confirmed. Will try for 4.2 for all of these.
  • Screen Area Editor Tabs Design Doc #117954
    • Does look like a possible Blender 5.0 feature, so we might want docking much earlier.
