Is there any movement on this one? I've done some work for my brother (a professional video editor) and he has asked for the output to be in PRO RES LT... the change mentioned seems pretty minor - is there any reason why this can't be committed?

Andrew Buttery (axb) added a comment to T38254: Making the mode selection dropdown list in the Editor headers consistent across all editors that use them.

Thanks for the thoughts, but I got stuck at #3. The 3D View mode selector uses different code from the others (there's a lot more C involved) and I have less time now than I did in January (my summer). So at the moment I'm on hold on this item.

I'm happy to help with the clean up of the image editor if you want to delegate some parts of the development, once there is a decision.

You can use Ctrl+T to switch between frames and timecode in any of the editors that have a timeline. The VSE is the only editor that defaults to timecode rather than frames on open.

Andrew Buttery (axb) added a comment to T38058: update how a couple of properties are displaying.

It also occurred this morning that if we make this change then we also potentially break any addon or other python script that assumes that the default display for percentages and factors is a slider. So making this change may have a bigger than expected impact...

Andrew Buttery (axb) added a comment to T38058: update how a couple of properties are displaying.

It occurred to me that middle way option is that we leave PROP_FACTOR hardcoded to be sliders and just add slider=True to the PROP_PERCENTAGE items so they could be sliders or < n > fields...

Adding the units and updating the tool tip was easy but the x10 change was a little harder as there was a hard-coded multiplier of x5 (not 10). I'll submit a .diff but Campbell will need to review as this is the first time I've had a go at a version switch to handle the removal of the hard-coded multiplier (i.e. before fixed version multiply size value from preferences by 5)

OK, spent some time on the weekend trying to un-disable the particle setting ID Browser without any success. I suspect that until a particle system exists on the object particle settings will be disabled. Clearly the two are very closely linked and you can't really create/delete one without the other.
