Overlay: enable/disable drawing of specific object types.

Authored by Jeroen Bakker (jbakker) on Jul 5 2018, 2:38 PM.



This patch will allow users to customize what object types will be drawn by the object mode overlay.
It supports: Empties, Lamps, Cameras, Speakers, Armatures and Lightprobes.

It currently does not support Physics objects due to the overlap it has with other objects types.

Also be aware that in pose mode the armature is drawn, but not by the object mode overlay

Would flip the flags, otherwise when adding options we need to version bump every time. (eg: V3D_OVERLAY_HIDE_EMPTY)


Strange that only some object types are supported.
