William Reynish (billreynish) added a comment to T66861: Change Text Font in Bold, Italic doesn't work.

@Dalai Felinto (dfelinto): We should most certainly make improvements to this area. Pressing Bold, Italic, Underlined toggles should affect the selected text, just like any text editing app would. Wer should make this work as expected.

William Reynish (billreynish) added a comment to D5146: Improve consistency and descriptiveness of tooltips for popovers in top right of 3D viewport.

@Keavon Chambers (keavon) The word 'enable' is implicit in the fact that it is a toggle with a checkmark. The checkmark already communicates 'enable' or 'disable'. We put 'Show' in front of items to clarify that it is a display option.

I’m not sure if the new pencil icon. It just looks like a stick, and there is nothing pencily about it. Perhaps make it thicker and add a tip or other things that makes it readable.

Yes, we should not invert cursors like the magnifier - only the arrows, as you say. But even then, if we switch to the built-in system arrows, even that might not be necessary.

William Reynish (billreynish) added a comment to T66406: Cycles sky texture impossible to set accurately near horizon (sunset/rise)..

1: Yes, why we don't have numerical input for this I don't know. It makes obvious sense, as it's currently quite difficult to accurately control. It's not a bug of course, but a missing feature.

Most of these seem like improvements, except the use of the term ‘drawing mode’. We don’t use this term for display options anymore - it’s fundamentally confusing when we have actual drawing modes for users to draw in.

William Reynish (billreynish) added a comment to rBc93af8529dfe: Tool System: don't unlink gizmos when changing tools.

This commit breaks changing tools. Now, when you change tools, the gizmo is simply added on top, and the previous gizmo doesn't go away. the more you change tools, the more gizmos will build up.

William Reynish (billreynish) added a comment to T66166: blender fails to change NLAtrack text color(using stocked theme).

I found this report quite hard to read, but I interpret it to be about the fact that you cannot see which channel is selected in the NLA source list. That is indeed an issue, which appears to simply be a mistake, and is trivial to fix.

As you say yourself, it *IS* a keymap conflict in your custom keymap with using right-click for tweak and also cancel. You'll have to sort out this conflict in your own keymap.
