Info Header Useful [Iconize Header]

by Bookyakuno in Scripts and Addons

Iconize the header and add detailed features

The text menu in the header is converted into an icon, making it a compact UI that does not interfere with work or vision. Add some more detailed menus.

Useful when you want to operate on a narrow screen such as a notebook PC or split screen display, or for advanced users who are familiar with Blender and want to operate with minimal UI.

Change the color of the header in a specific state to reduce misoperation.
Like a 3ds Max that can check the effective state of automatic keyframe insertion.

  • When automatic key frame mode is enabled  …… “Red”
  • When Dyntopo is enabled …… “Yellow”
  • Mesh editing  …… “Green”
  • When editing shape key …… “Blue”
    • Internally, the color changes when editing a shape key other than the top shape key.
    • If the topmost shape key is in a non-base mesh order, it will not function properly.
