Oh well, as Homer Simpson would say: DOH! :-) -------- What about a drop-down menu there? The icon would display an open lock - or nothing at all. When clicked, a drop down contest menu with check itens for each "locking" option would appear. If any of the locking options would be picked, the icon would ebcome a locked bolt. Clicking on it, would make the drop-down menu to show up revealing the state of the layer. This UI could even be used to the linked state as well, therefore resoving the space problem. I do not have the time to elaborate a mock up on this, so I will explain the idea again, with a different wording: On left-clicking on the layer-tree, where the current "linked" icon for each layer is placed, a drop-down menu would be displayed. This menu would contain 4 itens which could each be checked or unchecked: Transparency Lock Color Lock Geometry Lock Linked - If either of these get checked, an apropriate icon (which could be always the same) would displayed in that place. -------------- IMHO, the idea of other specific contest menus on the layers tree may be needed anyway when layer grouping is included - There will simply be more options than the current UI can deal with. > > > Sven > _______________________________________________ > Gimp-developer mailing list > Gimpemail@example.com > http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list Gimpfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
