The LPE choose dropdown box is getting really huge now. Who wants to make mockups of what is a better system for applying effects?
What about just a hierarchical menu with submenus, similar to the Effects menu?
I think this is an issue that needs more to be discussed before coding anything (search for filters ?) Here is a first draft for LPE submenus, please comment and modify :
=Artistic= // Everything that changes the path style (on a visual point of view) Freehand Shape Interpolate Sub-Paths Pattern Along Path Sketch Stitch Sub-Paths
=Create= // create a very different path Gears Spiro spline ? VonKoch
=Path Tweak= //small modifications Knot
=Distort= // change the path shape Bend Envelope Deformation Lattice Deformation Perspective path
=Technical= // tools for tech and serious drawings Angle bisector Boolops Circle (center+radius) Circle through 3 points Construct grid Mirror symmetry Offset Parallel Perpendicular bisector Ruler Rotate copies Tangent to curve
