i really tried to use siox this weekend. it is so confusing, i have no
idea what to expect from it or if what happened to me was a bug.
the default is foreground extraction. i wanted it to background extract
and toggled this tool option. it toggled itself back to foreground and
it also could not see an honest line that was in the image. a dark
brown/gray area that ended in a very straight line before a very bright
(luminescent even) area started (which was the background i wanted to
it would not stay toggled and it seemed to be blind to the colors no
matter what values i gave it. it only selected what i selected which, i
could have used quickmask for and it would have been a lot less toggling
is the tool broken or are my expectations all wrong?
i am honestly way to baffled to go to bugzilla with this even.
it would be one heck of a status bar message to explain how to use this
also, the tooltips are popping up some freaking huge tool tips. it is
the long help that is in the script-fu? i think it was some of the
third party scripts i have installed that were doing this -- i did not
find it at all helpful.
is GIMP showing the help blurb or the about blurb from the scripts?
