Renato Henriques (Spartacus1) added a comment to T68704: Documentation: explain that Blender 2.80 Exporting a textured OBJ with any shader other than Principled BSDF will result in an MTL without map_Kd pointing to texture file.

As Ryan said, it's tolerable that complex textures with layers are not exported. However, image textures should be exported correctly, as in any other 3D package.

Ryan Ackley (ryanackley) added a comment to T68704: Documentation: explain that Blender 2.80 Exporting a textured OBJ with any shader other than Principled BSDF will result in an MTL without map_Kd pointing to texture file.

Took me days of pulling hair and googling to find that textures not exporting is by design. I don't think it's an unreasonable user expectation for simple shaders like Diffuse BDSF to export texture images. I can live with the workaround however. It's just extremely obscure and unintuitive.

Matthias Richter (theyseemeblendin) added a comment to T69307: Some lines in .pot-files don't translate to any language.

I don't know what exactly caused this behaviour, but I found a solution:
If you rebuild the pot-file from the corresponding rst-file (I used "make update_po" for this) and use it to create a new po-file, everything works fine. You'll have to manually copy all translated messages to the new po-file though.

It's strange that Blender 2.8 solved most interface annoyances when compared with other 3D packages but keep some that are still unique. I've tested most 3D packages and Blender is the only one that is unable to save a .obj file without textures (even if this option is available in the export as "Export Materials". If we are using an image file we must add manually a mat_kd line with the proper image name after. Come on guys, this is not, by any means. a design choice, it's just clumsy and unique to blender. If I choose in the options to export materials and "copy" option available, the used textures should be copied and the respective mat_kd line added.

No bbox of the object is ever used, so why show it as such?

Paul Melis (paulmelis) added a comment to T70041: Rotate around bounding box center poorly documented.

Right, so in object mode and edit mode the behaviour is different (bbox of object centers, versus bbox of selected vertices/edges/faces). So I still think the first picture on that page ("Relationship between an Object and its Bounding Box") is putting readers on the wrong foot. No bbox of the object is ever used, so why show it as such? If it is to explain the concept of a bounding box then showing the bbox of objects centers would make more sense.

Because we want the git repo (which has to be checked out by everybody that wants to build Blender) to be as small as possible. And a tremendous amount of changes in PO files, from week to week, are actually in the 'source' comments (line number changes). those info are mandatory for translation work, but useless if you only want to generate the MOs binaries...
