Martin Capitanio (capnm) added a comment to T57820: Fix 3d gizmo position awareness problem.

@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) from a graphic-design point of view it doesn't look very good. My (female) co-worker and I still prefer variant 1:

testing here, axes which are in-front are displayed brighter - which is the intent.

I mean the aligned axes (example 1,2) that worked on the previous commit
28e7c94de26a4706af16d6f2893917ca910a27ce
now they are always bright.

@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) That's hard to understand and doesn't work as intended for the first paragraph:

+			/* Flip the faded state when axis aligned, since we're hiding the front-mode axis
+			 * otherwise we see the color for the back-most axis, which is useful for
+			 * click-to-rotate 180d but not useful to visualize.
+			 *
+			 * Use depth bias so axis-aligned views show the positive axis as being in-front.
+			 * This is a detail so primary axes show as dominant.
+			 */
+			const bool is_pos_color = (
+					((axis_order[axis_index].depth > (axis_depth_bias * (is_pos ? -1 : 1))) == (axis_align != axis)));

Martin Capitanio (capnm) added a comment to D3936: Fixes to Navigate Gizmo.

To evaluate this requires more than just recoloring a single screenshot …

You're right, we need a prototype to fine-tune the details.
Personally, however, I believe that you only construct problems that aren't a problem.

I think the negative signs are more disturbing. What if you only change the opacity?
It becomes clear which axis points forwards or backwards:

I marked it as invalid because it's not a bug and definitely not a crash (the only kind of reports allowed at this moment). But then I felt bad about it and spent my Friday night fixing it.

Actually, the left mock-up looks good, the outlines are annoying.
I think it does not matter if the backdrop disappears. As long as the (white) text is still readable and the symbol is visible, the grey backdrop loses its original function.

Looks like we have a transparent (white) circle surrounding gizmos already (text doesnt). Unsure what a good solution would be here.

Turns out, there is also a regression in the 'freehand' drawed strokes with the tablet pen. The first screenshot is from v2.74,

Xinput events coming from the tablet pen (a quick rise from full pressure):
(blender probably pick-ups the last a[2]=0 events for the line thickness)

Fantastic.
Btw. almost everywhere in blender, the key-repeat doesn't make sense
and should be therefore disabled. I have been teaching already many kids
(using blender). For some reason this is causing big problems
for their fingers/brains. I am curious to see how it is with stickies ;)

Hi Julian,
(beware: I can't decipher the code and may completely misunderstand the stickies)
this enables the keyboard-repeat and makes the numpad keys behave as
before - here is it expected. But i think, this shouldn't be the default for shortcut-keys
set as hold aka sticky?

FWIIW, it seems to be also broken (in a different way) for emulated numpad keys (user preferences -> input).

Martin Capitanio (capnm) updated subscribers of T44251: '0'-key shortcut in 3DView (switch to/from camera view) broken - sticky keys?.

I believe this is still not working properly. A long press
on numpad [0], [4], [6] ... is causing weird effects.
It creates in total two clicks (a second one on release).
