we often complain about lack of functionality and missing features within SW. But in my opinion there are also so many useless features and functionality with unpredictable results that are kept and carried on from release to release.
What is your top 10 list of useless features that SW Corp. should dump?
Here is my "most useless" ranking, but I am shure you´ll have a lot more ;-)
- Spellcheck & Windows Desktop Search -> wtf, I´m not a writer?
- Screen Capture -> why not use existing OS functionality
- Freeform Feature -> did you ever manage to get a predictable result with smooth surfaces that could be used for injection molding parts?
- Flex Feature -> did you ever manage to get a predictable result with smooth surfaces that could be used for injection molding parts?
- Wrap Feature -> why an extra feature, it´s easy without
- Lofted Surface vs. Boundary Surface vs. Filled Surface -> why not one tool for all
- Edit Textures (not Edit Colours, Edit Material) -> it´s a mess, why not integrate into real view or pw textures or elsewhere?
- Task Pane with all those gadgets mms feeds, newsticker, etc
- PhotoWorks Studio & Render Wizard ??? -> all these presets produce only crab
- all this obsolete functionality to satisfy former autodesk users (2d to 3D, command line emulator, not to forget the freaky DWG Editor, etc.)
