    Ok, I just ran into a show stopper with the GUI designer... pressing f1 for the HTML help page, while bringing up the help page, crashes modeler. 2018.0.7, Windows 10 Pro 1803 (build 17134.590). Perhaps the help function needs to move to it's own button, because lightwave uses the f1 key for it's help function...

    Also, I had an idea - when a new control is added, could it read the location of the x and y guides for placement? That way, it becomes move guides, add control, repeat as needed. Perhaps as an option? Ideally it should all be drag and drop (like QT Designer, Visual Studio and #Develop's forms designer), but such may not be possible under LW_Python....

    At the moment I am working on a new release for the nuArchitect bundle. As it will have complete new UI (using tab in tab) and some new (own controls) the nuGUIDesign will become evtl a complete new Interface and maybe it will be dedicated from the rest. As I must work in any case with the code, I will switch over to an other key for the help. Thank you for reporting this.

    Have a look at the "Add" Tab. There you can define things like this. There you can define how new controls are named, where they are positioned, the dimensions. Here you can do even a rename of the variables etc. Maybe this is what you have in mind with "read the location of x and y"
    If a control is added, you can drag it around (using the right mouse button)... I am not shure what you mean with drag and drop. But I find the idea really nice. I will think about a tab with"Dummy" controls, that can be used as Drag and Drop source for new controls.

    Python is fast enough to handle things like this. Thank you for the idea, I will try to implement this.
    As the next generation of nuGUIDesign will be able to generate code for the "nuLib" too (can be choosen between "Standard UI" and "nuLib UI") I must code it from the scratch, what makes it more easy to implement such things. But this can take a while.

    I hope this helps you and gives you some anticipation to the next generation of nuGUIDesign.

    Regards,
    Kanuso

    Wow, I learn something new, large or small, every day (right click and drag to position controls). Thank you for considering my ideas. Yes, you've got the idea correct - simply dragging a control from a tool bar, onto a blank panel, and dropping it adds the control to the panel. The other thing would be to make it respect the x and y snap values.

    Still, even the current one saves a lot of time setting up a panel for use in python, so thank you very much.
