Summary0000737: Couple draft suggestions

currently Draft move, rotate and extrude work in a way that you need to select object and then move it. When nothing is selected, all toolbar buttons are inactive.

This is good, but maybe it can be extended to make it more user-frendly. Maybe buttons do not have to be disabled when nothing is selected, but enabled. and then (if nothing is selected) user clicks on i.e. move, and then clicks on a point on one shape, and then that shape is being moved. Also, if user wants greater control, i.e. moving multiple shapes, moving exactly one shape, it would still work the way it works now.

This feature is just about how to execute commands if nothing is selected.

Rotate would work the same way, extrude faces also - you click on icon, then on a face and it is being extruded.

other commands I have not used so much, so I would not know.

IMO this would be more user-frendly.

TagsNo tags attached.

Hm that was like that before, but I removed that for some reason I can't remember... I'll have a look if it can be enabled again.
