I think we should do that.
that's a really good idea! Regarding export/import, GIMP's document model is much like Inkscape's, with the difference that for the latter, it is immediately understandable why... Still, i very much hate to send users into one-way streets, and for the open=import case, this is not planned. I wonder if we can't somehow ease the case where export=save? Perhaps via a shortcut like 'export to PNG & close document & discard data'? When export is just a branch in the workflow and editing continues on the GIMP document in RAM, it might be beneficial to offer one-click Save into a backup-directory without having to choose a filename. Perhaps 'export to PNG & save backup'? just a rough thought, peter _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list Gimp-developer@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU https://lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
