Hi again,

1 -  I work a lot in the "Layout Mode" and I feel it's a little distracting that I have to swap between "Layout View" and "3D View" all the time just
to get a good look at what I'm doing so I had an idea. What if we could split the "Workview" in to two parts where one will be the "Layout View" and
the other the "3D View". This way it would be very easy to get a really good look at what you are doing right away and I can have a continues workflow.

2 - A simple (or advanced  :D) sculpting tool that worked right inside the "3D view". Just a brush with some simple functions: rise, lower,
flatten, smooth and so on. This would be very handy for some final touches to the terrain, create caves and lots more.



For #1, something similar to this is what I've wanted for a long time. In particular, for multimonitor displays, being able to send a view (or two) to the second monitor would be immensely helpful.

It's not technically difficult to implement, as all of the various views are already always-there, just hidden when not in use. This is another one of those "B" or "C" priority items that isn't hard but has languished because there's other things above it on the priority list.

I can't promise when it will be implemented but it IS a good idea!
