@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton), @Brecht Van Lommel (brecht)
sorry annoying you guys, I wish I could get a second review on this. This is not such a big feature but I really believe it could make blender sculpting more competitive.
For some reason, some reviews neither get rejected nor approved, just stay stagnated.

Jean Da Costa (jeacom256) added a comment to T60481: The ghost bones do not appear.

The animator doesn't need to see the whole path all the time, its like onion skin, so this could be solved by limiting the number of frames evaluated, adding a start_clip and end_clip, maybe even with a pretty fading gradient.

I'm not sure it's really deprecated, since those are comments from 10 years ago. @Joshua Leung (aligorith) would know what the status is here I think. Maybe ghost drawing needs to be restored in 2.8, and the comments updated?

Jean Da Costa (jeacom256) added a comment to D3869: Fix T57852: Mesh X Mirror option not working.

Radial may be quite hard to implement on edit mode objects are rarely radially symmetric.
We don't need to unify everything, only the axial symmetry, radial symmetry is a sculpt specific feature.

Sun, Jan 13, 6:27 PM
Jean Da Costa (jeacom256) added a comment to D3869: Fix T57852: Mesh X Mirror option not working.

@Julien Kaspar (JulienKaspar):

The reverse is also true. If you enable Symmetry, and switch to a different object, you'll accidentally then start to manipulate it without Symmetry, because the tool setting was forgotten, because it is now a different mesh. That is equally as annoying. This is my point: There are cases where you may want to use it only with certain objects, and there are other cases where you won't. And that applies to any tool setting.

If Symmetry is really going to be per object, we should do so consistently in all modes, and display it in the ObData Properties.

But, the most consistent solution is simply to make it a mode-wide tool setting, and make it work the same in Edit Mode, Sculpt Mode and the paint modes. There's no difference in use-case, and no logical reason why they should work differently in the various modes.

Jean Da Costa (jeacom256) added a comment to T59419: Please, make a per-window topbar..

Thanks for a good answer, now, I can understand a bit what happened, the fact that a thing designed to display global settings is being used to display local properties, is really alkward.
,A per-editor bar doesn't exclude topbar, it moves local settings like tools into it, while topbar can keep the global mode-related settings.
Many users are concerned that it's too disconnected from the editors when working with multiple splits in the screen, the topbar switch like crazy and is seemingly disconnected from the editors that it inherits settings from.

Ever wonder what happens if the scene is too heavy, with the only visible cursor rendered inside the viewport, with low FPS you can easily loose controll of where your actual mouse is, if the viewport take too long to update, since the system cursor is hidden.
