The unfortunate thing for GIMP is that Shift is not quite the 'invert' keybinding (undo/redo). In other applications this works extremely well because the shift key is the invert-keybinding, but for some reason we have Ctrl (dodge/burn, sharpen/blur, FG/BG fill, horizontal/vertical flip ...). If we were to be consistent, this would have changed so that the shift key is again again the invertor. But this would mean a lot of replacing of Ctrl/Shift throughout the tools. I, for one, would welcome some thought put into consistency. -- Jakub Steiner <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>
