The current Neo Editor is quite minimalistic in its UI and has a lot of menu driven interactions. One idea I had is to improve this by
– creating a context sensitive toolbar above the 3D view
– adding a tab to the left panel that shows you a view of your project directory
This way it would be much easier to add new features to the UI and finding assets would become much easier and more integrated into the workflow.
Another feature to think about is resizable sidepanels, i.e. allowing the 3D view to shrink and the panels to grow as the user wishes. That allows a more dynamic working environment.
What do you think about it?
