It looks promising. It helps to find all features with a given key word but
there still seems to be a bit of scrolling up/down the list which would seem
to slow down the selection of functions/features.
One program that allows selection of operations via a command line interface
and allows setting/changing of command parameters is Rhinocerus 3d. You can
see a video of it at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJVrUqytvhA
When using the program I select a few things from the menus, often use the
icons I have on the screen, but I use the command line to invoke some common
operations for which I know the name. I can type "SW", then tab which uses
completion to turn that into "Sweep" followed by either a "1" or "2"
depending on if I want a one or two rail sweep. All options for the sweep
command are shown with keyboard shortcuts so it is very quick/easy to select
an operation and set its parameters.
The one difference between what you have done so far and Rhino's use of a
command line is that Tito is useful when you don't know the name of a
command but Rhino's use is good when you know the name of a command.
