- Make the number field areas highlight on mouseover, so it's always clear which part is activated
- Kick out all embossing effects everywhere
- Remove widget outlines
Popovers for Proportional Editing, Pivot & Snap

We would like to simplify it, as well as making these features more clear, like so:

Dropping materials onto objects should highlight them
Dim shortcuts in menus
Shortcuts in menus should be dimmer than the menu command itself, like so:
