Item 1 and 2: can be implemented as add-ins, especially with the new features that will be in 2.90.

Item 3: Not sure I understand. Using "Win32 application wizard", and choosing "A dialog based application" in the wizard, when creating a new project, will give you a template with a dialog as the main window. How do you want to extend this? Or do you mean something else?

How I understood it is to use the dialog editor to edit the controls placement and output the windows code not the resource file.

Yes, if you open main.rc (from the project tree), and then open the dialog named DLG_MAIN, you can change the layout of the dialog.

You need to write some code, to use the new controls that you put on the dialog, and it's not as nice as Visual Basic, bit it's a start.

This is the traditional way of doing it. A lot of existing projects depends on this approach. If I can figure out a better way, without messing up existing projects, I will add it in a future version.
