Dani Epstein (danilius) added a comment to T45900: Blender replacing spaces in filename with underscore.

You can have your spaces back if you download a build from builder.developer.org.

Technically, Luca, it's not a bug. It was indeed a pre-planned feature, which granted I amongst others found terribly annoying. If you read through all the messages, you will see that the latest builds from builder.blender.org no longer feature this "feature".

Actually, despite all my whining, it's amazing. Try doing that with Autodesk, Microsoft et al. You can wait months for bug fixes, only to find they were badly done, or even that they are ignored entirely. This speed of response is almost unheard of outside of open-source, and Blender is the crown jewel.

Campbell, you are quite right, and my apologies to Bastien - the new features and bug fixes are all very valuable and enormously appreciated! I did not intend to rant about the decision-making process, but it looks like it turned out that way, and that's simply not on.

OK, I see what everyone is saying about the forum thing, and looked up the various links. I bow to the majority.

You are probably correct, both in general and in this case as well. Nonetheless, it would still be beneficial to have a Blender Foundation forum for having some kind of direct and "official" contact with the development process, perhaps with some kind of entry criterion. Blenderartists as a forum for floating ideas is a trainwreck, since - as an example - there is a very vocal minority of hobby users (not a bad thing in itself) who are more concerned with eye-candy than day-to-day utility.

If this "feature" is extended to its logical conclusion, Blender should not accept file names for other .blend files, images etc. that contain spaces.

Seth, your masterful arguments sum up my feelings on this matter beautifully, and so pithily!

Is there any way of switching off this feature?

Dani Epstein (danilius) added a comment to T43152: Crash when switching to material view in viewport.

Nope, that's fine. As long as I'm the only one, I can safely assume there is something wonky on my box. No surprise there; just wanted to make sure that it got reported in case there actually was an issue.

Did. Same result. I take you can't reproduce the problem at your end.

Ran it with blender-softwaregl and got the same result. Attached the crash file.

Finally found the offending plugin: the Enhanced 3D cursor by dairin0d. Switch it on, tooltips go, switch it off and hey, presto! The tooltips are back.

Yup, sorry for this one. I did not know about the --factory-startup switch. Fortunately I know which version the do work in with my current setup, so when I have a moment I will track this down and report.

Bingo! That sorted it out. Now to find out which plugin is causing it.

First thing I checked, and switched them off and on again.

  • Play around with the Window Draw Method in User Preferences -> System

Quick try yielded no results. Restarted Blender after each change.

I am really very sorry - I missed out a major detail: This only happens
when rendering in a viewport. The rest of the time it's fine. I tested
around 12 builds to narrow it down to 19f7f9a.
