  • Is it just me or are there other people that get frustrated on how the menus work? There is no visual aid that suggest that for example unsplit a view you have to select:

    View -> Editing views -> Split -> Unsplit

    I really miss the arrow indicating a submenu or the three dots for a dialog ... the cascading submenu opening in an attached menu window and not all in the same box, getting lost ...
  • I further miss that there is no icon for the grids or an indication which step grid I'm currently using (before I start moving around and the grid shows up).

  • I miss that Front, Left, Right, ... icons I got used to in LDView, which are much faster then the compass in the bottom left-hand corner.
The menu system indeed could use some improvements. the main reason it is as it is comes from the fact I initially wanted them to be pin-able and visible in OpenGL fullscreen mode. I also wanted to include none simple text item ones at some point (e.g. the compass it self) but this never took off.

I'll try to find a way to add at least the '>' arrows to submenu items, '...' is already used for dlg ones unless I forgot one.

I'll also look into making it possible to (optionally) let them act more like normal windows by opening submenus alongside their parents etc.

As icons for left/top etc those you can add to the menubar by providing png images your self.
