See also: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=51108 For the many user, "anything that is not visible does not exist". All keyboard shortcuts and (especially!) modifier keys should be made visible using a tooltip, a message in a status bar, or some mention in a dialog box. And of course they should also be explained in the help pages, but it is important to have some feedback in the user interface otherwise the user will not even know that something more is available and can be found in the help pages. A general change in the keyboard shortcuts between 1.2 and 1.4 should be to use the Alt+key combinations only for accessing the top-level menus and the other combinations (Ctrl+key, Ctrl+Alt+key, Ctrl+Shift+key, ...) for direct access to some tools or items in the menus. So we should free Alt+F, Alt+I, ... This would provide a better consistency within the Gimp and between the Gimp and other applications. -RaphaŽl _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
