Playing a little more I have seen that the problem has nothing to do with the import, but with the emitter of the fire. The simple fact of eliminating the Fluid Flow (Fire + Smoke), makes the fire disappear and only the smoke remains in de Domain, even if the Cache is already stored.
In the same scene you can copy and instance the Domain as much as you want, but the moment you delete the Flow, the fire of all the copied Domains disappears.

The problem persists but I have found a peculiarity.

One solution of course is to make the keymap editor also work more like this.
I vote it
The only drawback I see is when comparing options.
If not all of the preference editors were synchronized, it would be resolved, they are currently a clone.

Today I tested it and it works correctly.
At some point I remember the program was closed instantly, the last time I could not draw the path. Surely, when you inverted the left button by right, you could not find it, if so, forgive the inconvenience.

Automatically generate Face Maps from Loose Parts, materials, surface curvature, UV islands ... I think it would be useful.

I have noticed that Snake Hook correctly fixes the direction when Original Normal is activated, and also press the control key. Together it works, but not separately.

I considered what Gizmo should look like, when the selection was small, and I have also tried to overload less.

Starting from the base of the first image, I made a small update.
Understanding that the pivot is always in the opposite corner of the active grip, I have colored them depending on the number of axes of influence. The black box has nothing assigned since I don't know if it's worth it based on the central pivot or with respect to the view.
Perhaps it is a bit overloaded, but the box transformer could be used to SCALE and SHEAR, and pressing the Alt key, to MOVE and ROTATE.
Here I leave a capture of the two modes, the yellow shapes allow to scale and rotate from the opposite base, and the RGB move and Shear, depending on the mode.

I wanted to share a trick that I use to perform retopology. Subdivide the mesh but with the simple option. In this way, the contours do not round up so much, and the edition vertices remain in the same place as the originals. With the extra faces and the Shrinkwrap the new mesh is always seen above the reference mesh.

Sorry for duplicating the task.

I have the same problem.

I think so, Duarte Farrajota.

Rethinking my proposal based on not mixing the properties of active tools with anything, I think the top bar could be below the header. In this way the editor and the mode would always be on the top right.
In the previous screenshot, I had duplicated the properties of the active tool to show the vertical and horizontal option, in this new model I added an intercanver to avoid this duplicity.
Although in Sculpt mode there are no coordinates, snaps ... in the center of the header I have added them to see how the distribution could be in other modes.

If the toolbar can be hidden, I see an error that the Editor Type and Mode are in the toolbar.

Because all the options of the collections are transferred to the objects inside, I suggest contrasting them with respect to the rest of the objects, and indicating their effect on their contents.
I guess the video is sufficiently explanatory. Although it is only a visual effect, I understand that it helps to understand the hierarchy of effects.

I see it a bit confusing to link a collection of the blender file to the scene. I think it would be useful to call them from Layer View directly. Even a pop-up menu that shows all the collections and allows you to link and unlink directly, would be very useful, so you do not have to switch between Outlinier modes.

Yes, today I tried on several computers and does not work, there is no indication.

Looking for an object to visualize the transparent and translucent materials, I think you could find something with grace, that as Suzanne could be imported by default. Suzanne not being flat does not rest well on the surface and always has to adjust its position a bit and does not always fit.
It is only a sketch, if interested you can work better and optimize.
Jan 10 2019
Without wanting to stretch longer since it is out of topic.
I have improved the design, I have made a video and I have uploaded it to RightClickSelect to explain myself better, I hope it is useful Charlie, thanks for your attention.

Increasing the quality of subdivisions to 6 solves it.
If the performance does not get much worse I think that the quality parameter should always be at the maximum, or even be eliminated.

Testing the new keyboard shortcuts, I see that in the Edit Mode menu, apart from with v, e, f you can access vertices with 1, edge with 2, and faces with 3. This way you can access sub-modes with 21,22,23. It is fantastic, could it be indicated better? I was just going to suggest it, and when I tried it I have see it works.

Reading that the 3DCursor is made disappear in SculptMode, it has seemed to me a shame, just like a user suggested can be very useful, which is why I think more than eliminating it should be vitaminized to be more useful. I think that if the 3DCursor had head and tail could be used for more things, such as the ZB Transpose Tool or the Modo Linear Fallof Mode.
At Blender we already have Mira Tools's Deform Mesh that does something similar.
My proposal is that it resembles a bone of one point and if its future is to be expanded its functionality, the other is affixed.
May 17 2018
In the same way that the new extrusion tool allows to move in the transformation coordinates and in the normal one, I was wondering if it would be convenient to unify the transformation tools in edit mode a bit.
May 16 2018
Finally, I have made a comparison between the current distribution of the attributes and the proposal with the alignments changed, to see the final effect.
I've done a simple animation to show how the cursor affects the three attribute editors at the same time.
It is necessary to show how to navigate between nodes from Attribute Editor, but I think that showing a pop-up Node Editor window would be enough.
I would also like to comment that other programs such as Houdini or Maya align in a similar way, but then add long sliders to the right.
I have added and updated the icons.
May 12 2018
I have updated the design.
May 10 2018
From Node Editor and the proposal of Properties Editor, I have made a new proposal trying to unify the representation of its attributes in the two editors, indicating if the attribute is animated, linked ..., and at the same time indicated if it has Inputs or Outputs.
May 3 2018
I would like to remember this concept of manipulator of transformation of objects, based on a free axis and a circle, I find it very interesting as an alternative to the current one.

Matcap is a trick to simulate a complex illumination by a texture, but the magic is lost in the fliped faces. I think the normals should always look at camera in this mode, and the Face Orientation Overlay support transparency adjustment.
I usually see students modeling with golden and normal inverted Matcaps XD
Because the icons are 3D and the color is per vertex, I suppose it should be easy to flatten them by eliminating shading and shadows. I have done a test to see the result. In the same way that now you can adjust the saturation and opacity, it would be cool to be able to adjust the shading and the projected shadow.

Selecting the objects completely within the trace, or partially within the selection stroke, is an option that I have always missed in Blender.
Autocad directly modifies this option depending on the direction in which the selection is made, from right to left or in the opposite direction. It is not intuitive but you adapt quickly.
Another useful option is face mode by selecting mesh or by face center.
I have also observed that in Blender Select Lasso uses the origin of the objects to make the selection while Border Select uses the mesh, could it be another option of the selection tool?
Apr 6 2018
Another attempt for static and dynamic overwriting.
Mar 26 2018
I completely agree with William Reynish's design document. Working with active tools is more intuitive and unifies all the attributes, options and manipulators related to that tool.
The active tool system is better when you have to repeat an action several times, and although it is less direct, at any time you can call an action directly thanks to the use of Sticky Keys.
The use of Sticky Keys seems to break the current modal system, because it is uncomfortable to press more than one key at a time. I think that by pressing RMB during the execution of the tool, you can display a floating menu with all the options of the tool.
I leave a .gif showing the suggested option.

I could not resist. Here is a completely different proposal for the Overrides.
Feb 4 2018
Taking into account some criticisms I have adjusted the design of the overwritten ones.
I leave you alone until next weekend :)

The last of today
I have made stickers for the Overrides. They are red as the record icon, I do not know if it is the best option.

First of all, to say that there are very good designs.
Jan 30 2018
I leave you a proposal. I have done it vectorially, but when I rasterize it it does not have the contrast that I would like, for this reason I have contrasted and outlined it by pixel. If it is of your interest I can improve it or pass the .svg file.

Thank you for clarifying some questions Paweł Łyczkowski.

Surely developers see it clearer than me, but I personally find several blind spots in the design of the top bar. Sorry in advance if I'm confused.

My two cents.
Hi Campbell, I see that in your "Tool System Proposal" you have everything in mind.

When you launch an image on the 3D viewer, it automatically appears in the backgroud. It would be good to conserve this functionality with the Empty Images. It would make cut out animations with ease.
Converting the Empty Images to Mesh Planes, retaining the proportions and texture, I think would also be useful for playing with complex shaders and lighting.
Sep 11 2017
Perhaps, by placing the Pivot in the center of the image by default, it will streamline the workflow.
Aug 30 2017
I've done a demo to show the most minimal version of the sliders.
The gradients or not of the lines below the values, show whether the attribute is finite or not.
Some functions are displayed when you hover over the cursor.
I think in my version the values stand out better.
Jul 18 2017
Thanks for the aclaramient Clément.
From what I have seemed to appreciate the overlapping faces of the same object are sorted by identification number and by material. The materials under the pile are painted at the end (above).
It is difficult to see in the second image, it shows how some Backfaces are painted erroneously above the faces oriented to camera.
I hang another image where it is better appreciated. The yellow and green grid material are the same. There are two objects to the left and one with two materials to the right. From above the transparency is seen correctly, from below the order of painting is reversed.

Just a mockup of Property Editor more responsive to the area width.
It involves vertically dividing the editor and setting the visibility of the panels located on the left partition.
Here an animated .gif

I think for lights and cameras it would be wise to keep an iconic shape with fixed size.
I also believe that the current shape of the lights could be differentiated more, better define the direction of light and show its intensity. It would be useful to be able to edit some parameters by entering Edit Mode or a new Mode where the basic parameters of the objects are visually editable. I painted white shapes that could grow or change color, depending on the color of light or intensity.
I have added an iconic shape to the camera, I have removed part of the hidden mesh of the pyramid and reduced the size of the triangle that marks the vertical.
Combining white and black for the shapes makes them more visible.
May 4 2017
I think Alt 3 is correct although compared to the initial icons, the outline should be brown, not black or gray.
Anyway I added a couple of proposals adjusted to the style of the icons of Blender.
My vote is for Alt 5 :)
Apr 29 2017
For me the last alternative you have outlined is good, although it is radial the circle is not closed and can be interpreted as general. I leave some ideas, I personally like the arm, shape is complex but the silhouette is very recognizable, on the other hand it is generic and because it is also in WhatsApp the association is also fast. The boxing glove looks like a cloud.
Apr 10 2017
I've been playing around with the shader and wire of the objects and I upload some of my thoughts for Viewport representations.
Apr 6 2017
The customization of the color of the wireframe by object go against to the color symbology used by Blender, for this reason I have been exploring a bit with the contours of the active selection to see if it is possible to separate the function of color and the customization.
On the other hand, happy to see the improvements in the grid.
Mar 31 2017
I have made a gif where the new selections are highlighted for a few moments.
I do not know if it can be useful or distracts visually.
If this don't slow down the workflow, I think it can help to better orient yourself in the scene, especially when jumping from one object to another in sculpt and paint mode, or when you have two overlapping models, in high and low definition version, and you don't know which one you are selecting.
The new grid loses opacity as it approaches the clippig / end, since the horizon is parallel to the view I think that the opacity of the grid can also fade as the angle of the plane and the angle of view is smaller.
When the position of the camera approaches Z = 0 the grid should fade.
Mar 23 2017
Opacity of the edges relative to the length of these on the screen.
What if, in addition to filtering the visibility of objects with the collection, are also highlighted or filtered objects with labels?
Local camera (selected objects) could be one more tag.
Mar 22 2017
Wow, the grid is cool! You might charge less if you gain opacity near the selected object and updates while object is moving.
The last suggestion of today. Perhaps objects that can not be selected should be darker or cooler.
Show optionally, proportional transformation with an editable color gradient
The mesh subdivided could lose opacity according to the number of subdivision.
The UV islands may have different colors in Edit Mode.
Feb 10 2017
A couple of small suggestions:
When you want to move an object in Z and Y is pressed G + (Shift + X), I think it would be more comfortable to use G + X + X.
With Ctrl + LMB, selections are made with lasso, it would be more useful to do it with Shift + LMB, adding + Alt to execute the rectangular selection and + Ctrl to invert the selection function.
Dec 17 2016
Re images #2 & 3: I guess you mean being able to select a transform manipulator axis, so that the next time you LMB-drag the transformation will be constrained to the selected axis? I thought about this idea too - it might be pretty handy - but I'm afraid it will be annoying for people who switch back and forth between using manipulators and shortcuts/LMB-drag: they'd always have to make sure no axis is selected if they want unconstrained transformation using LMB-drag. I yet have to find a proper solution to this.
Dec 4 2016
There are keyboard shortcuts that only work in one area and one mode, and there are others that always act, such as F12 to render or Ctrl + S to save.
I do not know if it would be a good idea to ban the general shortcuts and make all specific for the area and working mode. In other words, Ctrl + s should only act on the information area, for example.
I only comment as a reflection, as I think this might facilitate the editing and maintenance of the shortcuts.
By default Blender accepts the actions with the left button and cancels with the right. Some addons like Mira accept with the right button, and others like Craver sometimes do it with Space.
May 29 2016
Ohh yes Thomas, for me it's the perfect solution. With "Active layer" could be possible to preserve the old Blender's funtionalities, and overwrite objects representation.
I would add the possibility to filter objects's visibility by object's name or anything else (subtractively).
I guess the partitions are intended to render layers, not for the 3D viewer, isn't it?
Here a fast mockup.
May 14 2016
Without giving much importance to the 3D cursor, we can have the next interaction with the 3D manipulator, leaving the right mouse button to select exclusively.
Seeing the fourth drawing, where the planes are added to the manipulator, if the arrows are preserved, the current interaction is kept, thus any transformation plane is accessible.
May 4 2016
Currently Blender allow to have an object in several layers, the mock up of
Paweł Łyczkowski, maintains this possibility. Is an extension of the current model and looks great.
If the objects were unique for a layer, the next a mock up would make sense.
The two systems seem right, just I think it is worth making one last thought. One keeps compatibly with Blender itself, the other is more similar to other programs.
By the way, I do not see the need to individually access the parameters of each object. It is assumed that the layers serve to treat objects in groups
