Where could I post a simple suggestion for the software? It's not a huge programming issue or nothing too complicated. It's quite simple actually (I guess): To add some sort of "compass" in the 3d window (or in the main window too), just to guide us with the navigations. I find it confusing to sometimes move a control thinking it is going in the let's say the Z direction when it's not... an example of this: with the SuperCubeScale3Start parameter open, I was trying the "cutting" options to see what they do. If I pick up the X cutting for example, I was expecting it to be cut somewhere along a horizontal line, but it's not (it's cutting in the vertical axis!), which means that or the image is rotated or the camera isn't in a "zero" position - which for a "starting" image, it would be assumed I suppose. It can get a little confusing, IMHO. And we can't simply detect what's the image position just by looking at the XYZ coordinates, not everyone can "read" in 3D that easily...

the right place for this question would be:

+  Fractal Software
| |-+  3D Fractal Generation
| | |-+  Mandelbulb Software
| | | |-+  Mandelbulb 3d

A compass would be helpful sometimes, i agree.  Would be easier to make in OpenGL or so though.

But the cutting planes and the start parameters are ok, the x axis is horizontal and a cut at x=0
leads to a plane from front to back and top to bottom, thats like it should.
The y axis is vertical, so a cut at y=0 would lead to a plane from left to right and front to back.
