Cool. I didn't know about this right-click trick. It's working great
and it's a good start. Is there a possibility to make the detached
menu permanent? I've restarted gimp and the menu was gone.
As I said, I want to streamline my work with gimp while in tablet
mode. I was thinking to have a very thin window that fully expands
into a toolbox when the mouse enters it. The window would contain my
buttons and it would shrink once the mouse leaves it. It would also be
a top window, so it would stay above the canvas. The window manager
would always display this window on the edge of the screen (this
behaviour is very similar with that of the input panel from vista -
I was thinking of trying a client-server system for this. The gimp
would start a server when it loads the plugins and the button window
would be a separate app that sends whatever command the server plugin
accepts. The server would take the command and apply it on the current
image (or, if there is no way to determine the active image, to
gimp.image_list()). Is such a thing possible?
