Re: Concerns From a User's Perspective

Already done. I now have Editor privileges. All I now need is some "work." I would consider myself an advanced novice. I jumped into editing the Wiki because I think the documentation is most value for beginners and since I am reading it with a beginner' mindset I hope that I can spot pro...

Just a thought: perhaps also consider * | for vertical (a pain with the German keyboard) * - for horizontal * = for equality/parallel constraint Generally, having a second shortcut (pre-defined or use-defined) w...

Re: GuiCommand model Wiki page

Yes, but how would this look on the side-bar (assuming RMB-clicking is the only way to access the command)?
Would it make sense to show both ways in the sidebar?:

Draft: Remove obsolete tools?
