I am asking this because I have a small niggle with the border filter. I don't
know if it's by design or accident, that's why I'm asking here first before
filing a feature-request/bug report...
The following happens and at first I was puzzled what was going on:
- I loaded an image
- added a border
- then I wanted to apply unsharp mask filter (I forgot it in the steps
In the preview of the unsharp mask filter I now had only the background that
one usually gets when an area where nothing is drawn is visible. I shortly
later found out that the "add border"-filter does open a new layer which is
still (at least partially) selected and is taken in as the base of the
preview for the unsharp mask filter, although the latter does seem to be
applied to the background layer where my image resides in.
So either the layer handling does seem to be off a bit with regards to the
preview area of the unsharp mask filter, or the filter shouldn't end with the
border layer being selected or my understanding of the whole concept of a
layer in this regard needs an update.
