could be good, could be too much, I'll let others comment on this

ctrl key already gives this functionality

drag and drop is pretty complex to add, but might be part of 2.5? I'll
leave it to the devs to answer this one.

again, ctrl click.

yeah, this is really useful, and afaik there is already a patch in the
patchtracker to do this (from sparkde's TD I'd love to see it applied to

not so sure this is really that great, there are python scripts however
that allow 'baking' mesh envelopes into vertex groups.

eh, you seem to be wanting to add a lot of existing functionality to
left mouse click? sounds a bit overkill, unless you are shooting for
some tablet pc type interface.

you are asking for a lot here. better learn to rig than wait for this to

so you are saying (in other words) change the default orientation of the
cylinder primitive. I don't see why this is important, but hey
(cubes/spheres don't have an 'end' so much, planes align to z, cones
align to z, circles align to z... etc.

solution: don't worry about them. really. it's a feature, and very
fundamental behavior, not to be changed lightly because of a slightly
over-zealous cleanliness syndrome.

not sure what you mean here, both work for me. if there is a bug, put it
in the tracker.

yeah, would be good.

I don't follow, the example you give seems to be about non filled faces
not showing angles, but the question is about displaying angles in a
'predefined object'... I assume you mean, show angles for unfilled
faces, sounds logical, but I personally never use this feature, leave it
to the architects
