Duarte Farrajota Ramos (duarteframos) added a comment to T61480: Add rename popup in the 3D View to replace the old Item panel.

When one is making an effort to rename things and keep a scene tidy it is a frequent action to rename both the object and the data at the same time so having both in the same dialog would definitely save quite some clicking around for two very related actions.

I would happily aprove of this change. It would single handedly solve the problem by making it immediately discoverable, at the (IMHO small) expense of a little a little getting used to the new behavior.

It is one of the current strengths of Blender and one of the things I really like about it.
There are several cases where you want objects visible in the viewport but not renderable. Here are a few:

I agree with William I believe it is just a miscommunication issue, more specifically a matter of using the correct icon and label.
As I have mentioned before, if we named it something along the lines of "Freezing" and changed the icon to a snowflake or similar (if copyright doesn't get in the way) it would solve most confusions

Just though it could also integrate to the camera view gizmos, but your solution is indeed a lot more consistent.
It also turns the viewport text into something functional, instead of static text.

Duarte Farrajota Ramos (duarteframos) added a comment to D4298: Automatic 3DView Overlay Colors.

But if those colors are important, and specific colors are expected, then I *could* make them dynamically too.
Or I could take the specified theme color and try to make it darker or lighter. However that has some pitfalls. It would work correctly if the theme designer used a color with some latitude, like a mid-green so I could shift it into a light or dark green.

Looking pretty good so far, huge improvement. Only one small nitpicking.
The save button is perfectly aligned with the preference categories tabs, and is exactly the same size and style. It looks way too much like one of them despite being a completely different type of UI element.
This might be potentially dangerous for the user accidentally saving changes instead of switching tabs.
