Feature #3206 Editor: Cell marker menu

Hi

I was asked to look at feature 3206 (https://bugs.openmw.org/issues/3206) and have started to look through the source code for the editor.

I'm not familiar enough with the internal lingo yet to parse exactly what is meant in the ticket, so I have some questions:

1) The "Cell marker menu" is that the right click menu in the region map view? I guess that it's not, but i can't figure out what else it could be.

2) The text refers to something called "the marker", what is that?

3) "primary/secondary edit button", where can i find out what buttons are what?

It's all about the Scene view (3d view). The cell marker is displayed at the centre of loaded cells in the Scene view (see first image) - it's basically a black box containing the coordinates of that particular cell and, AFAIK, only exists for exterior cells. You can enable/disable this option via the icon bar to the left (see second image).

Accordingly, the cell marker menu should be displayed when clicking the cell marker (black box with coordinates) with your primary/secondary edit buttons. Those can be looked up and modified in the User Settings panel (see third image).

Thanks for the explanation, I'll look into it when I have some free cycles.
