The reason is: most graphic developers I know don't like to mingle more than what can be mingled with their app GUI. Almost everytime suggestion to change some file manually is welcomed with an unpleasant grimace ;) and rather nasty feeling about proposed tool. I'd love to avoid that with GIMP while trying to promote it. That's why I suggested the whole shortcut scheme/theme thing. I did it even more so because in fact GIMP is halfway there with configurable shortcuts. What I'd love to have is being able to change all of them with one switch. In my GIMP 2.7.1 there are options to save shortcuts, restore fatory defaults and clear them. I'd like to be able to change them not only to Ps-like but also to ones custom defined suitable for cleaning some scans while preparing reedition of a book or while retouching some photos. I don't like to do that by exchanging config file every time I need to make a general change or by hunting down proper actions in menus or shortcut editor. That's all :). Maybe all this conversation would turn other way if I didn't use the dreaded Ps banner ;). Best regards! thebodzio
