Not sure on the ordering but I wanted to see how it looked
Please consider that this move breaks with long standing UX tradition in huge number of software FreeCAD, Gimp Firefox, inkscape and others.
In my opinion such a move away from established traditions should have better arguments than the view menu is full.
Is it possible to reorganise/restructure/optimise the view menu?
This is 2 cents of mine
Haha, of course. I mostly wanted to have some discussion on the topic and, chiefly, to be able to do it as a learning exercise (I'm very new to FreeCAD internals.) This issue is not the hill I want to die on
By the longstanding tradition do you mean having a "View > Toolbars"? Also, my "the menu is full" argument in favor is really more "prominent/important UI buttons should not be buried". But really, I don't want this to be bikeshedding about shuffling menu items around, moreso a bit of chat about what might improve usability in some far-off interface redesign.
