Blender development todo list -- Installation/Environment
Open, NormalPublic


NOTE: this is a direct dump of (without cherrypicking the valid items)


  • Add code to detect drives to change (usb connected, disconnected)
  • RNA library needlessly rebuilds every time in visual studio.
  • Blender doesn't recognize .lnk shortcuts or hidden files.
  • Symbolic links are not supported T37619.
  • NTFS junctions are not supported T52080.
  • Re-opening with windows on the same monitor fails on ''some'' systems T34962

Mac OS X

  • Users have to manually change OS X defaults:
    • Map middle mouse to regular "Mouse button 2"
    • Make the Function keys use modifiers (so Blender sees these)
    • Change the Shift+NumPad options to not use Shift (change spaces)
    • The latter two could become part of a new standard OS X compliant map in the future?
  • Finder aliases or hidden files are not being recognized by Blender
  • OS X swallows some key events, like e.g. emulated numpad - on Norvegian keyboard (see T38273).
  • Blender prevents OSX from sleep T38702


  • Drives could be auto-mounted as they are in Ubuntu's file manager (selecting an unmounted drive mounts it). see T30518
  • Support Freedesktop clipboard management, see T38674
  • Support xkbset accessibility T39047
  • Support XINPUT matrix for cursor warping T48901 (edit: this depends on a bug-fix in xorg, see task)


  • Add timeout to file browser, so network which is hicking up does not annoy artists, see T37051
