the early wish list

Dashboard preferences:
- When opening up a file, new tab option (so dashboard always available in my browser for quick reference, not replaced or forcing me to back out of the part design to see it again)
- Preview images of all documents vs. list of names ....just makes it more engaging when logging on for the first time.
- Folders or somehow to organize a project

- Share - pick from easy headshots of the community, or team....vs. typing in emails
- realtime collab/editing. session experience. As I navigate/design....others can view/edit live as well (removing the gotomeeting bottleneck)

Viewing modes:
- Shaded, Hidden Lines, Perspective, Dimensions

- 3Dsketching feature

Modeling features:
- Materials
- Inserting components, icons of all my parts (matches what shows up in my dashboard) - vs. copy to clipboard
- Assembly patterns

Down the line:
- embedded HTML, Drawings, Sheet Metal, Surfacing, Realtime Rendering, Animation, CAM, FEA

- 3Dconnexion controller, Wacom tablet

    @jluchini‌ I will parse through these requests and get tickets written against this. Many of these have been requested, others have not. Good list! Keep them coming!

    Nice list Jeremy -- thanks!

    Re: your first item: To open an Onshape Document in a new tab use (in Chrome on Mac) Command+Click. I know there is an equivalent on Windows...maybe CTRL+Click.

    Any models you can share with me?

    @jluchini‌ I have added your tickets... btw, you can see dimensions for any feature by right clicking and selecting "Show dimensions" or double clicking on th feature in the graphics area. Not the same as show all but get you some info. Perspective view can be toggled here:

    There are also some early stages of surfacing.. not where it needs to be but we are working on that!
