Flyout toolbars

I've added fly-outs menu to toolbars in HeeksCAD. Currently you have to press the little arrow button to get the popup menu. Then you have to click again on the menu item. I want it to work with a click and drag, rather than two clicks. Also, I want to get rid of the little arrow button and have click and drag work on the main toolbar button. Also, I want the button on the toolbar to change to the last used tool from the drop-down. I can't work out how to change the tool bitmap, though.

Looks cool! It is surely a very minor thing, but I like much the style that you gave to your icons, it gives heekscad a very unique look. Most people simply reuse stock icon or copy other software...

I still have a couple of issues with Heekscad, specially the text that appears on the 3D view itself, but I should definitely rebuild a recent version.

Anyway, always nice to follow the progresses!

Cheers

Thanks, Yorik.
I draw the icons with Inkscape, which I am learning to use.
The text on the 3D view can be hidden, if you don't want it. See "view options"->"screen text"
