We use this Gimp feature on virtually every image we create, sometimes
_hundreds_ per day.
Once we originally set the number of lines in the grid, we have felt no
need to make a change for months ... thousands of images.
However, I do have to say that the Photoshop 5.5 feature of simply
drawing a line with the measure tool and then doing the rotate command
is more efficient.
And I do like the suggestion of clicking on the first point and then the
second point, rather than having to draw a line as in Photoshop.
I would like to see this feature _added_ to Gimp, while still retaining
the grid mechanism also.
My desire would be for:
click (on first point)
click (on second point to finish the line)
do a keystroke command that can be accomplished with ONE hand
to execute the task (I would prefer not to have to hit the Enter
That would be most efficient.
