*Unless* you "compress" the history stack, the focus location on the stack is only pertinent if you make a new edit, then that "net edit" will replace everything above your location on the stack. ie: the stack has 21 entries and you have focused on 18 and leave that image, when you return you will still have 21 entries. If you focuse on 18 and compress the stack, you will then have 18 or less depending on whether you have utilized a particular module more than one time without initiating a multiple/new instance. clear as mud? placing the focus on an entry in the history stack and leaving the image does not change the history stack. -- (paka)Patrick Shanahan Plainfield, Indiana, USA @ptilopteri http://en.opensuse.org openSUSE Community Member facebook/ptilopteri Photos: http://wahoo.no-ip.org/piwigo paka @ IRCnet freenode ___________________________________________________________________________ darktable developer mailing list to unsubscribe send a mail to darktable-dev+unsubscr...@lists.darktable.org
