Hello

I tested some new changes, still need to test some other ones from recent versions,
and I like it, thanks for adding new features with each new release.

I wonder, is it possible to change how 3D arrow hotspots works so that popup up image with node name isn't distorted?
Please take a look at attached photo.
3d arrow looks nice but popup image gets very distorted at certain angles, and I'd like to have it straight in all positions.

Hummmmmmm,
As everything is in 3D space i cant see how to do this.
I'll forward this to the devs to see if they have any ideas.

Thanks.

Maybe just simple restructuring of said hotpost would do the job:
- Place image and text outside from distorted area into its own
- Add additional check box "apply 3d distortion" to thumbnail setting for those who would like to see image distorted as well.

Imho it's more visually appealing that popup thumb is not distorted at all.
Just to be sure, I've shown news to my coworkers and they all agreed that thumbnail shouldn't be distorted

Best Regards
