Graph Editor: Curve drawing improvements
Confirmed, NormalPublicDESIGN


Problem: keyframe dots can be somewhat hard to see, especially behind the current frame marker line.


  • Change the default theme to draw the keyframe dots larger. The current theme draws at 6px, for modern displays this should probably be increased to 7-9px. It's probably better to defer a concrete choice for this until T68982: Graph Editor: UI Scale effect on Curves drawing is done.
  • Draw keyframe dots of selected keyframes on top of current frame line. Keep drawing unselected keyframe dots behind the line.

  • Change Vertex Size theme property to 8px, looks nice and symmetric when the current frame line is on top.
  • Keyframes and handles should draw on top pf the current frame line.
