Re: Sweet Home 3D 2.3
Is this Beta using DirectX or OpenGL for J3D?
Well, guess what; it works on my notebook (that's a huge improvement!!).
-The navigation arrows look scrambled (maybe due to the bl##dy poor OGL support for my card)
-No Top view for furniture on the plan (idem)
(I guess when I use DirectX it looks fine anyway)

Please try version 2.3 with this link to a JNLP file for DirectX.

Nice the searchable list, but it could be better to include a switch between folders and list in the furniture catalog context menu (like switch from Aereal View to Virtual Visit in the 3D view)

Nice idea smile
But then, the user would be able to change a preference value from a contextual menu, something not common. It would also imply to add these menu items to main menu bar too, since any contextual menu must exist also in the main menu (just a basic ergonomic rule).
At this moment, I would prefer to add a keyboard shortcut to access directly to preferences. What are the common shortcuts for Preferences under Windows and Linux?

I just updated the Beta version to fix a few bugs and add the ability to import textures libraries with the new menu item Furniture > Import textures library.
You'll find an example of a textures library in the wood.sh3t file joined to this message.

A SH3T file is a ZIP file. It contains texture image files and a file that describes each texture image.
For example, the wood.sh3t file contains wood.jpg and wood2.jpg image files and a that describes the name, category and size of these textures:


name#2=Wood special
