As an alternative, I'd like to suggest a UI setup I filched from
Erdas Imagine (a GIS app). It sort-of emulates the Mac OS idea of
starting an application with just a toolbar.
here's the mockup (I made it long ago):
After the application starts, all you see is the menu dialog at the
top. It's not that different from the current setup, but a
top-level "menu" is more reasonable than a top-level "toolbox". You
get a single menu instead of the duplication in menus you have
today (toolbox menu and image menus). You can still have the pop up
dialog appear when you start Gimp, but when you close all the
currently open images, you don't need to pop it up again as the
menu is still there. And you can add toolbars for file operations
and common dialogs.
What image does the menu apply to? In particular, how does this work
with focus strictly follows mouse?
