Datablock handling: Show popup instead of Fake User, shift options, ...
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

The creation of static overrides as per current design should not rely on user holding shift.
We need a design that unify all the existing options (fake user, static override, ...) as a menu/pop over.

Dalai Felinto (dfelinto) created this task.

I'm not sure how many changes we'll make here, but if there's time we could try to make the whole thing more consistent/powerful.

I think it would be something like this:

◯▼Gold Material

Datablock selector on the left:

  • Select
  • Select Asset (in the future?)
  • New
  • Unlink

Datablock editor on the right:

  • Make Single User
  • Make Local
  • Make Static Override
  • Delete
  • Toggle Fake User
  • View User List (in the future?)
  • Remap Users
  • Mark as Asset (in the future?)

What's unclear is how much information and which buttons would always appear, and which would be in menus.
