Improve Library Panel UX with prefered behaviour options
There are a number of small changes that would make getting things out of the library quicker and more convenient. The panel should have some preferences to set default behaviour. Options should include:
Toggle 'place copy' or 'place linked file', so it always behaves one way or the other. The way my team and I use the library, we ALWAYS want to place copies (never linked files). So having to hold down ALT to do this is a pain. In addition to this, holding down ALT behaves very badly. It misses the key press if you move too quickly, meaning you HAVE to delay, even on a fast computer. Removing the need to do this would be ideal.
Toggle swatch conflict resolution between 'always merge swatches', 'always add swatches', and 'choose per item': I ALWAYS want to merge swatches, and the extra mouse point and click on “merge swatches”, “OK” <repeat> for every single item, let alone batch items brought in together wastes time. Just let me set it once and forget about it!
for multiple imported items, make it optional whether or not to place each item individually (point and click, as per current behaviour), or to simply dump the whole lot all at once at the location of the cursor where the user released the mouse button.
make it optional whether to add an extra group around the imported item, or to simply name the item itself as-imported with the name in the library panel (without an extra group around it).
There should be an opting choosing the default for importing an object from the library.
Today it is set to establish a link as default or using the alt-key for copying. The option should give the choice for changing / reverse that, as this might be the main workflow for many.
