Summary0000410: Grey-out menu entries that are not applicable
DescriptionCurrently, all menu entries are always "active", even when they cannot be used. It would be more user-friendly if only menu entries are selctable that can actually do something.

One example are all entries in the Brush -> Clipper submenu. I puzzled forever what these do and how they work, until I found out by accident you have first to select something and create a clip plane and only then these menu entries are "working".

Another solution would be to pop up a warning if these menu entries are used in a non-working state.

I'm tempted to just remove the Brush -> Clipper menu. Who the hell is going to click on a second-level submenu item instead of just hitting ENTER or SHIFT+ENTER to perform a clip operation?

Nevertheless, there are several items in the Brush menu which remain active when a brush is not selected (e.g. Make Hollow, CSG Subtract etc) which is probably confusing.
