Not really vector shapes -- which might be reshaped after the dialog was closed -- just that the effect of changes in the dialog would be represented "on canvas". > If you just mean that the dialog would > allow you to change the path and then stroke the result, that wouldn't > even need any work, it would happen automatically if the dialog stayed > open. If the dialog does not go away when the Stroke button is pushed (per item #1 in your original post) then a second pressing of the button should first remove the effect of the first stroke (in other words, the stroking does not accumulate). I am assuming this is what you intended so that multiple attempts could be made while getting the desired settings. It is currently possible to reshape a path while the dialog is open so I guess my point was just a cautionary note that a second stroking cannot just "overwrite" the first assuming an unmodified path. It would also require that path modifications send a notification that your handler needs to update the stroke "preview" (not needed if Akkana's proposal were implemented). _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list Gimp-developer@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU https://lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
