Group Custom Features

john_kuyperjohn_kuyper Member Posts: 21 EDU
The idea is simple.  Be able to group Custom Features into drop downs.

As I find more and more Custom Features, the list is getting longer and longer.  I would love to be able to create drop down groups of custom features.  For example, I would want to create a group of planes.  It would operate much like pattern features are grouped together.

It would also be really nice if the custom feature developer (and / or the end user) could create meaningful icons for Custom Features.

    +1 for icons

    2 characters is not clear, when you have a bunch of feature scripts with the same 2 characters used...

    I will move this over to the FeatureScript category so our team can see these two improvements.  Must more effective there.

    Maybe when creating the feature, there could be an "attribute" field so features with the same attribute will be grouped in to one category.
