Feature request: toggle display of numeric Thing/Vertex/Line/Sector indices in 2D view #868
When selecting items in the 2D view, SLADE draws numbers starting from 1, centered on the item itself, to indicate how many items are selected. This is handy! Lately I've been debugging lots of maps and thought it would be very useful to use this same "drawing numbers on the view" tech to show the indices of Things, Vertices, Lines, and Sectors as stored in the actual map data. This would be a debug viz mode, off by default, that you could turn on in the view menu.
It's something that could be added for sure, though i'd imagine it could get pretty cluttered in maps with lots of lines/sectors. Drawing lots of text also really tanks the framerate.
Also if what you want is an easy way to find a particular line/sector/thing/etc, 'View -> Show Item...' might be more useful
