    Yes.

    I can not imagine there is a full time UI engineer with this pace of UI changes.

    It's not just the broken Properties panel, the whole UI is inefficient and clicky with it's drop down lists and dialog boxes.

    The 2019 UI improvements are minor but the list search is very useful.

    No way of customizing the UI except some menu entries. More... menus everywhere.

    No docking, stacking, context locking, duplicating of UI elements possible which leads to dialog boxes covering the working area and requiring the user constantly moving them around.

    No custom Object type in Layout so that all special functionalty more then Object (Mesh), Camera or Light must be held in a Null object. In other software you have all kind of objects available directly in the UI. Prevents plugins from being integrated well and makes working with any special feature inefficient.

    The multi object selection very annoying and lets the user guess which elements will be modified.

    The most obvious UI issue in my opinion (very noticable and disturbing for users of other apps) is the horrible OpenGL visualization, mesh and grid aliasing and representation of certain elements.

    But maybe we will be surprised soon and there was a major UI overhaul going behind the scenes.

    Ideally users would be able to tear off tabs into separate windows and customize things to their liking. I like having them separate then I can leave multiple properties windows open on one side of the screen to see them at all times. I guess it really depends on the way each user prefers to work.

    I'm hoping for that or at least a really good start to it in LW 2020.
