[Q] Rename "Surfaces" panel

Postby jiminy-billy-bob » Mon Feb 09, 2015 7:45 pm

As I add other types of "surfaces" (recently Points Sets, and soon Splines), this name is not very appropriate anymore.
What should I use instead?

The best one I found is "Targets", but I'm not sure... Any idea?

emmitter? base?

Target might be confusing, so might something like "source" but I can see the logic.

I've been coming in and out of this post thinking I've got a good name and giving up on it.

What about "Placement" panel?

I know area is used but to me Skatter area seems easy to understand.

Indeed, Skatter Area would be an ideal name...

what all 'types' have in common is they are geometry which will 'host' the proxies...

Hosts would work for French and English and you can have "Host Surfaces", "Host Points Sets", and "Host Splines"

True... a little Creepy if you think of the 8th passenger but a name that fits the concept.

Hosts is good, but your targets was IMHO better and not confusing particularly since picking stuff is like pointing and clicking and painting stuff also implies the same action:

Point and click:

- A face/surface;
- A edge/curve;
- Point and click to place on points;
- Point and click to paint.

Any of the two will work of course...
