Hello again,

I have a suggestion for a next release of the software.

I would be pleased to see a new feature: a status bar showing the current status of all (context sensitive) ON/OFF options (more than 50 in v20) so that we don't have to go to the many Options menus spread everywhere to check if a given checkbox is clicked or not.

What do you think?

Candidates could be the following ones:

o Toolbar options
o Snap Settings
o Autogenerate Options
o Lot properties
o 2D Options and ON/OFF preferences
o Photorealistic rendering
o 3D Options and ON/OFF preferences

A long and thin bar, with small icons with or without a red stripe, in the bottom of the screen could be an idea.

My 2$

Hi there,

Most of them already exist => click on the workspace (not inside the project) and click on the "i tab" (information tab) => you can set snaps, grid, tabs, etc.
Also, there other toolbars that you can set using the U.I. (Preferences) and Design => Options.

Notice that (by design) the 3D / rendering options aren't available in 2D mode.

Hope this helps.
