Parameters combo box for entering dimensions

Status: New Idea

It would be handy to have a combo box available when entering dimensions which lists all the available parameters. This would neglect the need to click on the right arrow and select "List Parameters". It would save one, possibly two mouse clicks, especially if the user were to "drag" the mouse to the appropriate parameter and release the button upon selection. Maybe the List Parameters could be removed altogether if this GUI method were introduced.

Personally - I'd like to see 'Autofill' in the parameters boxes. My phone has it :smileywink:

good idea, I wanted to offer himself. Annoying to constantly go to the list.

I agree with Paul, the Autofill option is key here. So silly that it's not already there.
