|Summary||0003907: Manipulating groups in treeview usability improvement|
|Description||I have been extensively working with the Arch workbench for the past couple of weeks.|
One issue I had was that my object treeview got scattered with duplicates of object that were also items in other groups. I couldn't remove them by deleting them, because that also deletes the orignal.
After consulting the forum, I was adviced to install the BIM workbench that has a function "Remove from group" under the left mousebutton. This works great.
An other problem I had was that dragging and dropping objects into groups didn't always work. The target group somehow didn't accept the drop.
However in the Arch workbench there is a Utility-> "Move to Group" function. that works very reliable.
My usability problem now is that I have to switch between Arch and BIM to access these 2 functions when cleaning up my treeview.
My proposal is to make this Utility submenu item available generally in the LMB menu and add the "Remove from group" function to this utility submenu. This will not only benefit the Arch and BIM workbench but also Part Design and others.
