William Reynish (billreynish) added a comment to T70010: "Separate units" makes using math inside inputs less usable.

I have no strong opinion on that. At the very least, I would probably say that this isn’t a bug, but a feature request with some new downsides.

@Hans Goudey (HooglyBoogly) when there is no valid average normal, the gizmo just points upwards. This already works - check the Extrude gizmo.

@Dalai Felinto (dfelinto) indeed we should make copy/paste work correctly for Collections in the Outliner. I can’t imagine we’d need a whole design task for it, is there anything that isn’t clear here?

William Reynish (billreynish) added a comment to T69505: First selected object in Outliner is active one, while it is the last selected one that becomes active in 3DView.

@Bastien Montagne (mont29) ah yes. @Nathan Craddock (Zachman) is working on exactly that, also so that walk selecting can change the active item. It required refactoring selecting vs activation.

@Bastien Montagne (mont29) I guess we should make it consistent. It only really makes sense to parent the selected items to the active one I think.

William Reynish (billreynish) added a comment to D5810: Ghost: Make temporary windows on-top popup windows.

The way we should think about this, IMO, is that some windows are temporary windows and others are just secondary windows. Here are the three types of windows and what, in my estimation, they each should allow:

Exactly - I think they should be per type too, so that you don't end up with loads of Preference or File Browser windows.

@Harley Acheson (harley) Ok, it was not clear to me that this was initially Windows-specific. I am fine with supporting Windows directories first and adding more later. But I'm then not able to review this. Adding @LazyDodo (LazyDodo) instead to test on Windows.

@Ludvik Koutny (rawalanche) you can simply press P to go to the parent folder. This works for the default Blender keymap, just as it always has.

I always switch to ICK when testing 2.81, so I assume that industry standard in that case would be backspace :)
