Given these conditions

1. GIMP wants to provide its users with a good workflow, independent and unaffected by other similar applications. 2. The majority of 'New layer' commands are equal, i.e. users rarely changes the properties (width, height, prefilled color, etc) of a new layer

I fail to see why this should not be adjusted.

According to my (quite ignorant, and I'm sorry for that) previous discussions on this list; condition #1 is fulfilled, so the only 'non-proven' condition is #2 which I am pretty confident is also valid. If needed this could be futher investigated.

One other alternative be to provide a key-shortcut which would create a new layer with the previous properties, which would allow people using key-commands frequently to speed up their workflow. I mean it isn't especailly effective to neither Shift-Click nor click 'New Layer' and then click 'Ok'.

I'm sorry if this was interpreted as a 'bug-fix', because that is not what this is.

firendly to novies.
You just hold shift whenpressing the new layer button.
