Maybe I'm wrong, but shouldn't the instruction be placed in the Assembly _with_ the controller?

That would mean, that a user needs to inline the part, reset the rotation matrix of the controller and set it again to the wanted position.
I can add it there, but I wouldn't delete it here.

Where would you search for info about the controller?
In the part _with_ a controller, or in the part _without_ a controller?

If I need to add a part, I would look at the part without that part.
And if I would need to look, I waste time for open a part that isn't needed in my model.
Otherwise most of our help sections are in the C assemblies...

Are you sure that we need this?
As far as I remember we did not do it this way in the past.
If we introduce this, I fear that there will be lots of other parts with sections that can be pushed, turned or whatelse that are split this way.
The experienced user know what to do with the _complete_ part if in that part the help section is good documented.
I think this is overkill.

I think that like all moving parts (eg. motors) we need one "visible" (not tilded) shortcut for each element that can move, here fixed body of controller and moving button. A help is great but I know few people who open LDraw files to see them...

So what's the conclusion now? I'm more confused then before the discussion started :-/
If I interpret your comments right, I should make a tilde to this shortcut and move the help section to the main c01 file?!

Sorry for confusion ;)
No, this shortcut shouldn't be tilted, but all elements that compose it should. The dial that can be user rotated shouldn't be tilded either. And help is fine here, as it's this part that will be used to create custom version with non-standard dial orientations.

Philo: I'll add a tilde to the subfiles.
Steffen: Why do you think so? The reason for this choice were, that the the overall complete assembly (the main assembly as you can see it in the real world) is the first/main part and the sub-assembly get's the next number then. This happend, because a 'normal' user is searching for the number, then for an c01 assembly and the for a the next number, IMO.

i think so because I normally expect assemblies to go "bottom up", ie,
they should IMHO be in ascending order, adding more and more things.
check the 12V train points for comparison to see what I mean.

No! this is the part needed by user to make custom dial version. So no tilde for this!

Since there is no dark rubber grey colour in ldconfig, I'm OK with this, as it is.

It's better to have one file with help info, than ten without. ;-)

I would better like to have the top in color 16
and inside hardcode the color of the base.

Doing that will require to renumber this file
from currently 2868c02 to 2869c02

the reason for asking for this is that most probably
users will want to colorize the big top surface

I've uploaded 2869c02.dat
(an identical copy of this, with changed color 16 role).

I would like to suggest to delete this file and instead use that.

Steffen uploaded the other version because he thinks, that it would be better to have the cover in main colour and the base with an fixed colour.
In this file the base is variable and the cover is fixed in black.

I don't have an favourite, so I hope you'll do the decision.

Comments:
yes, exactly.
I think the assembly will be much more useful when
the main cover is color 16.
Imagine some setups where people want to use 2 such controllers.
Having the rear/bottom side use color 16 is not really useful.

Of course, I did not put MY name to that assembly but kept yours.
I only swapped the color 16 usage.

Chris, can we delete this file and instead use
http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.cgi?f=parts/2869c02.dat
please?

That assembly changes where color 16 is used,
and I think it is much more versatile than this one.
