Confusing lack of label for Fluid "use"
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I have now seen maybe ten users asking how to turn off/on Fluid sources (Fluid, Inflow, Outflow, etc.). I myself attempted a few monstrous hacks before someone told me about the little, unlabeled checkbox next to the Fluid type and that it is keyframeable.

Basically my suggestion is to make it much more prominent, as in modifying properties_physics_fluid.py to be like this:

row.prop(fluid, "type")

if fluid.type not in {'NONE', 'DOMAIN', 'PARTICLE', 'FLUID'}:
row = layout.row()
row.prop(fluid, "use", text="Enable")
layout.active = fluid.use

Thank you.
