Jean Da Costa (jeacom256) added a comment to T56278: Blender 2.8 selection inconsistent between mouse and pen..

@Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) the purpose of this check is to cycle though items under the cursor when you're not moving it.

This should be a very small value - otherwise the users might move the cursor slightly to select a different item - instead of selecting what is now under the cursor - it will select the *next* item from all items near the cursor.


Would rather avoid a preference - although we could have one which is the distance allowed before the cursor is considered to have moved. (different from drag distance).

Committed rB57395061042fe336dae7ee33e3ae11e53d068194 adding WM_EVENT_CURSOR_MOTION_THRESHOLD which is now scaled by the DPI, if it's still needed the preference can be added there too.

Jean Da Costa (jeacom256) added a comment to T59045: Make w (context menu shortcut) consistent and independent on what preference for Select is set - Left or Right. w should trigger context menu always..

How many times I see this happening.
I kinda agree with @Reinis Adovics (kroko) W should activate context menu both in Left and Right keymaps, there's not a relevant point on making this seemingly random distinction between keymaps. It only makes harder for users who learn different keymaps to talk about the same thing.

Jean Da Costa (jeacom256) added a comment to T61212: fluctuating viewport lag.

all the numbers start bigger than 1ms, then they quickly converge to small usual values before I have a chance to take a screenshot, not sure if its the sampling accumulating or actual times.
But those stats don't seem to follow the viewport lag.

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.

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.

Jan 13 2019, 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.

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.
