Healing cannot manipulate indexed images.
"Cannot heal indexed images. Use Image->Mode to change color mode."
Points: Instructs how to fix the problem. Concise enough (I hope) to
fit translations. Remove "Use" if constraints prevent users from
seeing "Image->Mode" (the important part) when clipping.
And as a general, pie-in-the-sky, comment:
It seems that indexed mode editing is cumbersome, confusing, and
limited. When core operations are moved into a GEGL, The GIMP should
probably lose indexed mode editing (indexed formats autoconvert
to/from) and a separate tool be created just for this type of editing.
More blue sky:
It would be really slick if all GEGL-apps could shuffle images amongst
themselves, assuming that interface is intuitive. So that, for
example, an indexed editor, a pixel editor, a SVG editor, and a
prepress app could all have a 'window' onto a shared image stored in
