This patch adds a single material filter to the Grease Pencil modifiers (same behavior as layers filter)

Matias Mendiola (mendio) added a comment to rBd727f4f22340: UI: Remove Grease Pencil Interpolation from stroke menu.

I don't see the Interpolation operator in the menu redundant, it is just another way to reach the tool and also give more discoverability of the operator shortcut (Many tools in Blender are also on menus, toolbar or header, just think of Move, Rotate, Scale)
There is also no reason to force the user/artist to change to edit mode for interpolate strokes, when the tool works perfectly in drawing mode too. It would only slow down the 2D animation workflow.

@Antonio Vazquez (antoniov), this could be added to T63726: User Interface Module instead.
Different navigation controls per mode or per workspace would be problematic for muscle memory I think. I'd really only do that as a last resort, if we can't find a better solution.

Matias Mendiola (mendio) added a comment to T67071: Rotate drawing canvas (viewport).

Maybe the tilt rotation could be the default rotation behavior in the grease pencil workspace, leaving the 3D rotation available through the gizmo or a less accessible shortcut

Matias Mendiola (mendio) added a comment to T67071: Rotate drawing canvas (viewport).

Although not essential, if Shift-numpad 4 and 6 (in all views) could rotate the view in a more fluid way without steps, it would be more pleasant for the artist/user.
Maybe we can use other shortcut (Ctrl-Shift-numpad 4 and 6) for stepped rotation.

@Alessio Monti di Sopra (a.monti) I did not develop the dopesheet, but I think the space is to get aligned with the name of the Object.
I don't have a strong opinion to keep or remove this.... maybe @Matias Mendiola (mendio) or @William Reynish (billreynish) have some comments about this.
Note: as the 2.80 RC date is here...is it logic apply these changes now (if they were acepted) or any change must be moved to 2.81?

@Matias Mendiola (mendio) oh no, those duplication
I've edited only circle. but I would recomment to:
not split brushes and tools
merge brushes onto a single page, types then settings or common settings then each types +settings
explain stroke editing only once
see how the sculpt painting chapter solves this (which is probably not perfect, but still)

Matias Mendiola (mendio) added a comment to T62446: Mouse cursor disappears on Grease Pencil stroke.

To clarify, these are the changes I think we should make:

  1. Change cursor in paint modes to NOT arrow cursor (crosshair, dot, whatever)
  2. Add global toggle to disable cursor, for direct input devices
  3. Remove the feature in GP that hides the cursor while drawing

The hide-while-drawing feature doesn't make any sense as far as I can see. Either you want the cursor enabled or disabled.
@Antonio Vazquez (antoniov): changing the cursor should be easy. Check the annotate tool as an example.

Matias Mendiola (mendio) added a comment to T62446: Mouse cursor disappears on Grease Pencil stroke.

The Crosshair cursor you are using in the sample video seems to me way too intrusive for drawing.
What other cursor alternatives we have? Maybe we should hide only the Arrow cursor while drawing but keeping the actual small brush circle icon.
