Navigation indicator

Postby triplus » Sat Feb 18, 2017 10:35 pm

It should now be a bit easier for the users to (learn and) navigate FreeCAD:

Thanks to all involved for helping making it happen.

Nice work.

Quite cool to see my UI improvement suggestion made reality and merged to master. :)

Now to look how it can get translated? I guess we can look at the other python modules as examples.

I know the feeling.

Investigating translations support and the indicator arrow representation on Windows are tasks left on the todo list. As for the ETA. Can't be sure yet but it will happen eventually.

Well I think for translation there is no rush, since the 0.17 release is nowhere in sight.

As I told you a few times now: he who does the grunt work grabs the spoils or something like that. ;)
I'm glad someone finds it useful and talks about it! I know of at least one other person on G+ who will too. It's a definite usability enhancement.

But some people are never happy :?

Once again "let's" which is short for "let us" which means "why don't you"
Thanks! @triplus and @NormandC for taking a good idea and making it a good feature. "Let's" have more of this in the future ;)
