User Interface Topbar needs image
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

If you go to User Interface > Topbar there needs to be an image of the the Topbar User Interface that that document is describing.

I would suggest putting the default Topbar graphic directly under the Topbar Header at the top of the page.

Reasoning:
This would help new users of Blender understand the visual context ( where in the User Interface) Blender documentation is referring to. This page is very long and detailed page.

Clarity would really help and only makes scenes to include a graphic of the User Interface - otherwise why have a user interface at all :-)

Thank you for the awesome documentation!!

I agree although it is a bit hard to represent such a long a narrow image effectively. I suggest maybe cutting the image 8n half and stacking them to make the overall image less wide.

I suggest taking a larger screenshot of a more complete blender interface, then highlighting the topbar area with the usual yellow rectangle.

@Demeter Dzadik (Mets) @Aaron Carlisle (Blendify)
I think both ideas are good.
I even go further and suggest:
There are three sections in the Topbar on the webpage that are being documented.

  • Menus
  • Workspaces
  • Scenes & Layers ( this should be “View Layers” not “Layers” ....but that is another request to update)

I submit the idea of:
Each section could have an image of its own area. This would cut down the amount of information needed in the graphic.

Thank you for taking an interest in this request and making Blender documentation as clear as can be.

You can edit comments, no need to re-send the whole thing ^^ I'll unsubscribe the accidentally tagged user and myself and let Aaron handle the rest :)

You need to remove the whole project... Projects should be tagged, never subscribed, otherwise you are spamming many unrelated people.
