Not too long ago the blender logo at the top-left of the Top Bar was just a decoration. It later got the ability to show the Splash screen. But it now contains a menu of items:
I assert that having a menu there is non-standard and undiscoverable. I have proposed that it should not contain any items that a new or average user should need, and only contain items used by advanced and experienced users.
Pushback on this is usually that it actually is discoverable because the logo has a hover highlight, and that it is similar to the Mac OS “App” menu - although that would be in a different location and be labelled “BLENDER”.
How do you feel about the existing App menu?
- Awesome! That is a great place for those menu items
- Meh! I don’t care, menu items have to go somewhere
- Yuck! That is a strange place to put menu items
- Yikes! I didn’t even know that menu was there
