Now when Skimp's active development is over (hopefully) I'm sure many of us would be so happy if PB could get some focused attention. Here's my humble vision what could be improved\added to this already precious tool:
*) ability to select profiles for path editing, get attributes,edit member properties regardles the context with a single mouse click.
Nowadays many plugins are able to suppress the context and act straight. The path could temporaly get thicken+glowing, and the rest of the model get hidden;
*) Tab key for profile live mirroring with preview; Arrow keys for Placement point changing;
*) 'Build' and 'build along the path' could be ONE command: say, vanilla build with no edges preselected, 'build along the path'- with reselected ones. Option for shortcut would be great;
*) Extrude algorithm improvement (currently in many situations PB generate many artifacts,
though all archaic and free extrude plugins are OK with the same path);
*) Input fields. I'd like to numbers will be selected and ready for input with a silgle mouse click;
*) I'd like PB to respect external plugins editing (such as S4U slice, Takahata's Stretch by area, Fredo Scale etc). Currently if you split\stretch some profile and then edit it's path, PB will revert to original path;
*) Gluing assemblies, windows for examples;
*) Nodes? User friendly Itoo RailClone inside Sketchup sounds amazing;
*) I hope we all will continue to enjoy permanent license + reasonable pricing. Please keep it as is. Honestly, I'm ready to buy serious upgrades\new versions on yearly basis, but not via subscription model.
Thank you for attention
