Workspace Icons

It's a very small feature, and does not effect the mod directly.

I would like to see icons in the workspace be deleted when the item/block texture is deleted.

It would just make things easier when you have a larger mod and accidentally give the wrong sprite to the wrong item.

If you want to say to remove textures of the Workspace whrn we remove a mod element I don't think that is a good idea because you will have to reimport textures each time.

Sorry I mean thumbnails…

Sorry I mean thumbnails.

They are kept in MCreatorWorkspaces/[ModName]/.mcreator/modElementThumbnails

 

I would just like to see them removed when a texture is removed from the workspace, or at least updated when the texture is removed then reuploaded with the same name.

Updating them when texture changes would require file monitoring and refreshing which would introduce too much lag.

Well I can understand why you would want to avoid that lol

Maybe just add a shortcut to the specific file under the workspace tab, maybe under "open workspace folder".

"Open workspace folder" would be fine if the file where the thumbnails are stored didn't require some searching.
