tom k (tomjk) added a comment to T70053: Viewport Bug report.

Your graphics card is a Radeon HD 5000 series card, which is based on Terascale 2 architecture, a predecessor of GCN. The earliest supported architecture is GCN 1st Gen, so your card is not supported.

tom k (tomjk) added a comment to T70057: shrinkwrap curve points creates spikes in curve.

This looks like correct behaviour to me? Apply on spline means all the control points (vertices and handles) of your curve get shrinkwrapped to the mesh rather than the resulting curve itself. If you set offset to 0, turn on apply on spline, then apply the modifier and enter edit mode, you can see this directly.

tom k (tomjk) added a comment to T69888: "Arrows" Emptys Broken and cause wierd visuals.

As per the requirements page, Blender 2.8 is only supported on Haswell Intel GPUs and later.
Your GPU (HD Graphics 4400) is Ivy Bridge, pre-Haswell.
Unforunately, graphics problems with old GPUs will not be fixed.
Recommended course of action is to either upgrade to a newer GPU or downgrade to Blender 2.79.

tom k (tomjk) added a comment to T69959: Face orientation not showing flipped normals.

Face Orientation overlay works on the object's mesh. Your mesh's normals are oriented correctly and the overlay reflects this; however, mirroring your object on an axis will multiply its scale by -1 on that axis. When you export to .fbx and import to your other program, this transformation is being collapsed/applied.

tom k (tomjk) added a comment to T69950: Light path node output doesn't have an effect on vector displacement..

As I understand it: when rendering, displacement runs first, then shading. Light interaction can only come into play during that shading step; no light is being calculated during the displacement step so no light path information is available. I think this sensibly sidesteps potential circular feedback issues (light affects displacement, displacement affects light...)

I think @Andrzej Ambroz (jendrzych) is suggesting to get rid of the inline datablock icons that appears when the item is folded (orange box in image). You can still see the object hierarchy as normal when expanded, so you can still examine which datablock belongs to which object - but it is a little redundant to tell the user that "this light has a light", "this object has a mesh", "this camera has a camera", etc. which is the only thing that the inline icons do.

This is expected behaviour. Moving an object and constraining along an axis works in the same way. If you want to move only on X axis, then it makes sense to cancel any Y movement. If you want to constrain the cursor to the XY plane (ie. horizontal/ground plane, without Z/vertical movement), press Shift+Z.

Blender doesn't know how to differentiate between extruding perpendicular to the surface and extruding in the plane of the surface. If it did, and automatically toggled the extra fill face, it would potentially break workflow for those who extrude then transform in two seperate steps. Blender can't foresee your intent, so you have to let it know by choosing a particular extrusion mode.
