Yes, keeping accuracy of the final strokes is so so important. drawing with acurracy is the key for a good workflow in 2D tasks, like @Matias Mendiola (mendio) said, more than 80% of the time used by the artist with Grease pencil is freehand drawing,
for this reason we create a group of functions in grease pencil brushes to improve the the drawing accuracy.

Bones have channel colors via bone groups
Bassically is have the same feature for GP layers

Yes of course, you can use the 3D cursor tool and works well but if you are draw mode in Grease Pencil, for example drawing a "3D/Volumetric" background buildings set, based in a just a few small orientated planes
(so useful for story boarding and animatics) you need change constantly between 3D cursor and pen tools because the Shift + Right don´t take account your preferences that you previous set in 3D Cursor tool.

Rotate Canvas (and flip) is a must in deed and it will implemented in a future but It's not a good desing choice IMO doing this by rotating the objectin draw mode, draw mode is for draw not for manipulating the objects. We need rotate the whole viewport.

Yes, Is similar a snap mesh options but only when you are drawing, In fact you need combine all the time the Origin, Drawing Plane and Guidelines
at the same time for certain drawing tasks

This could be so interesting in deep, but please please please before commint this kind of changes talk with anyone of grease pencil team.
As you now the contextual menus are so useful for the workflow and Grease Pencil is not just for "Paint", basically is an animation tool
and lost all the useful animation options in contextual menus is not worthy at all.

I am experiencing the same problem.

Yes, work well in Blender 2.79 official, the Huion is the only pen device connected. In previous version of Blender 2.8 (a month ago so) works OK with in same PC/Huion configuration .
Dec 15 2018
Same here. I do not have that checkbox in my settings.
Dec 12 2018
In the last build works fine

I like a lot this tool @Charlie Jolly (charlie). Great for the cleanup process and the implemetnation for the user seems ok, (need to test it)
A good improvement will be that you can see the final GP stroke during maipulation (like in mypaint) instead the current preview orange line and
the otherone is have a option to taper the stroke start/end in the toolbar. See the attached gif

I found some jitter effect in the arcs

Yes, I use Blender in surface book 2 with same issue and after instaling Wintab_x64_18.104.22.168 driver the pressure works (yay!) but Blender have some
problems manage this kind of pen devices, like this one https://developer.blender.org/T55589 the problem is that pen event is not received for the first movements of the pen and only after a while.
this task appear closed but still happening.

Thanksl you very much!

yes, in the lasts versions basicaly you can´t select the GP keyframes in dopesheet, "sometimes" can but not offen.
Oct 21 2018
yes the issue with stroke is so annoying in deed, can you check if you have the same problem with mischief link
Oct 14 2018
Be sure that you have the surface attached to the keyboard base, GP need a proper graphic card and the Nvidia card is in the base not in the screen part
Yes, is really really annoying, a little trick is if you make a "double click" taping twice in the screen, now you can draw small circle.
I have the same problem with MIschief (link)
but not with Krita, photoshop, mypaint, etc,

With the latest official microsoft pen works better because "reconstruct" the first part of the stroke, with others pens the first part of the stroke is not created, but yes,
is definitely an issue at the beginning of the stroke in blender

There is a duality here, Modifiers are Top/Down and Video editor are Down/top for example
For Grease Pencil is more standard the Down/top, like the 2D animation programs.

Yes, as Ronan said, the goal of properties editors in this 2D workspace is lost without a Grease Pencil object as active object.
The current 2D workspace is a good start indeed, is great to see the white background and a clear interface. The main problem is that goal for this workspace is have the layers panel and GP materials panel at the first sight. I´m not sure what is the best solution for that.

Good to hear some news about that!

Yest, these settings that are viewport related should be in the 3D view header
Jun 30 2018
Yes, an importat ponit in my opinion is that the user see at a first use the diference between Annotation and GPencil. So
a pre-populate list, a default RED Layer color (for example) and no pressure by default (activated by the user only if needed), send the right message to the user in the first
interaction with the Annotation tool.

Good point, I was thinking on that in all my tests with playing diferent wintab drivres, windows flicks, programs options, etc but Krita works fine with both, wintab or pointer input. The only program that i found with similar problem is Mischief (2D drawing program) but as I comented in the video
Mischief can "recreate" the first part of the stroke
The windows "Flicks" are disabled (or must be) , I forget mention in the video that programs like Krita, Sketch Book, Gimp are working fine without problem with the same laptop, only in Blender I notice this issue

Joshua, do you know blender.chat? Works with blender ID
Pablo, Dalai, Antonio, Matias and me just joined to a GP group. We want invite you joint us but don,t appear in the blender chat users.
4 it's quite low, 8 is the best for a better visuals but if your graphic cards not so powerfull 4 is ok.
I am referring to the GPencil AA in viewport
I don't know much about the technical implementation but from the user point of view the AA for GP is totally needed, I Hero was always on.

@Joshua Leung (aligorith) is it possible enable again the possibility to open the 2.79 GP files in the 2.8 GP branch? we have the Anncey demos in the Dlender booth the next week and when I open any GP file from 2.79 do not appear the GP data.
May 9 2018
So true, the color picker popup when you press the color icons in color list is totally needed.
May 8 2018
Personally I prefer the left one with less red diagonal lines, because the red lines are so visual intrusive in my opinion
May 4 2018
Ok for me
May 3 2018
Hi William! This is the video about the importance of Lock/Hide icons
Apr 30 2018
Yes, as Antonio said, The color picker is only to select a color and the color list (in material panel) is not only to select colors and define properties. the hide, lock, icons, etc are KEY in the Gpencil workflow. I could make a video to explain this point.
Jan 8 2018
I think so, the application is called AnimVR.

So please don't unable it! :)
Ease in /out is soooo usefull for animation, using all the time.

- Move the "Show Lines" and "Thickness" options to be in bAnimVizSettings - There's not that much benefit to making these changeable per-path IMO. You'd just end up giving animators more work trying to manage all their paths. These two settings also seem quite conceptually similar to the show frame number/keyframe settings, so having them behave differently (i.e. per path instead of for all) also seems a bit... <

Yes, from Artist POV is good, for example, I usually have 3 basics Layers to start. "Draf" "Fill" and "Final line", only need quality lines in "Final line" layer and when you
are working, jump a lot between "Draf" and "Final Line" .

corrupted file? it's a surprise, for me is "clean file", I don see ani meta-strip in VSE, so this is the problem, the file was corrupted time ago somehow.
I just append all the data to a new Blend file and know works.
Steps to Reproduce:
Mar 27 2014
I tried using with the default startup and default preferences, Blender crases all the times when try delete "jur" strip from "VSE_Blender_CRASH.blend"
Mar 25 2014
Basically is the standard workflow, adding video/images strips for animation references.
This is a bug tha I detected/suffer arround 3/years.
Sencond try, here is the file :
