Pros & cons of displaying the update-available icon (blue dot) on FS tabs
When a feature/reference update is available in a Part Studio, a blue dot icon is displayed on the studio tab, as well as directly in the feature list. This makes it easy to see, at a glance, which tabs in a document might require updates.
In Feature Studios, the dot is displayed next to "import" statements, but not on the studio tab. This perhaps makes the interface cleaner (not all imports can/should be continuously updated), but it also makes it trickier to track down out-of-date references.
What do y'all think about adding the blue dot to FS tabs? Useful? Or unnecessary clutter?
Or maybe a document-wide update dialog, with options to filter different tab types, would be a better option? I could imagine this being integrated into the far-left toolbar.
