|Summary||0005031: Feature Request: UI-Properties Window Improvement|
|Description||Currently the properties window is not arranged in a way that promotes a streamlines work-flow. I have attached a picture of a Properties window idea.|
This new design features:
(1) Less clicks in order to accomplish any task that the window provides.
(2) Less screen space.
(3) Easier to understand, and very intuitive layout
(4) Stylish look
|Steps To Reproduce||Not applicable|

Your mockup reminds me of the interface in some CAD programs, where the functionality of something like the properties panel is split into separately dockable mini-toolbars that you can place wherever you want. It often ends up looking like your design. I like being able to see all the settings I'm using at once.
I'm not sure how the new properties window in 1.3.4 works--did I read something about the individual parts being able to be torn off and docked, or are all the options visible already anyway?
