So yeah, why should I even listen to whatever you want to say when it's a one way street? I have better things to do with my time.
Definitely if you continue to focus on the perceived communication difficulties you perceive, you are not only wasting your time!
As a general life improvement I recommend solution oriented pro-activity! Escentially getting back to the subject at hand that improves the project and happiness of everyone involved!
Identify the priority concentrating on the subject, don't get sidetracked implying anything personal, but concentrate on teh maximal benefit of the project and its users.
What I have learned from the subject at hand is:
The deficiencies that I noticed on what is available in the right click menu fully depend on the active Workbench! This is counterproductive in a way because it requires people to know a lot about the different workbenches and what is available in them! A thinkable high impact modification could be to query for the selected design elements what are the available menu items in (user selectable) applicable workbenches and after eliminating redundancies offer the most probable mix?
I suspect that having different workbenches is great for the project, as it effectively creates parallel competing design approaches that evolve partially together and partially separate, and are often still concurrently available to the user to achieve his design intent. Being a complete noob on Python I can hope for something similar to Java called Class introspection, where you can ask Java Classes to deliver a list of method prototypes available for them. I suspect that that would be the approach to fix the right click menu deficiencies? I am focusing on the right click menu because you don't have to know which tools are where - you select and hopefully find the selected object knowing itself and what methods might apply to it?
