As part of a 3D push that started with the Windows 10 Creators Update, Microsoft introduced the Paint 3D app to make content creation more accessible to everyone. But, with a new feature coming to Paint 3D's Free View mode, it looks like Microsoft is pushing further to make editing even easier and more accessible.
As initially spotted by Microsoft watcher WalkingCat on Twitter, Paint 3D is the ability to edit object while in Free View mode. You can see the feature in action in the video below:

Currently, Free View mode simply acts as a way for you to pan and rotate your creation to get a better look at it, but you have to switch out of Free View to start editing again. With the enhanced mode, you'll be able to change the size and angles of objects while panning and rotating around whatever you're working on. That opens up more freedom while editing, potentially allowing you to be more precise with your edits.
Free View editing hasn't been officially announced by Microsoft, so there's no telling when it might arrive. But if you've taken to Paint 3D to toy around with your own 3D creations, the feature looks like it'll be pretty handy.
