William Reynish (billreynish) added a comment to T54963: Blender 2.8 Industry Standard Keymap.

We currently have the Blender Reference Manual, which is essentially a 'Help' system. For the time being, we could make F1 open that. Further down the road, we could improve our Help functionality in multiple ways. For now, our focus is on 2.8 itself, and less on documentation & help systems. Once we have a strong foundation, and as we get closer to release, I expect we will begin to focus more on those things. We have several ideas and plans here, which we would like to share at some point.

William Reynish (billreynish) added a comment to T54653: Driver Workflow Design.

Yes, we discussed that actually. It's just that currently, the properties don't work like that. When you hit return, the result is applied, and you can't 'edit' the expression, as you'd want to do. But maybe we can make it work that way.

Extrude manipulators are unfinished still. They are too big, and secondary axes are too prominent. We have plans to make improvements in this area.

William Reynish (billreynish) added a comment to T54943: Blender 2.8 Defaults.

For the backface issue, perhaps the best solution is to display it, but significantly dimmed. This way you can still see your mesh, but it's clear that it's a backface. @Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) Would this kind of thing be slow?

That's Extrude Along Normals. We have had that type of extrusion in Blender for years, and will be adding it to the 2.8 toolbar also. It's on the todo already.

Okavango: Thanks for the input, but we already know all these issues. The Add Cube tool is not finished yet. The way it is now, is just because it's half implemented. It was always meant to be a two-step drag and extrude operation. Probably we will indicate when the tools are working as intended. Cheers.

Cédric: Appreciate your enthusiasm. I am enthusiastic too! However, most of the things you are likely to point out, we already know and just haven't fixed or implemented yet. Our main issue currently is getting the frameworks for the tools system in a more solid state, then we'll more on to add more features and to fix issues. We have a long lost of things to do and fix to make it nice, consistent and elegant.
