I propably would include the new button, just make the creation of layer automatic when not clicking on gdyntext-layer. This is far more intuitive. When the user has clicked to gdyntext-layer the new button would create a new layer with similar settings. The "new"-button would actually be more like "duplicate this layer and the following changes affect the new layer" or "work on copy"... Also making the GDynText-plugin to remember the last settings it was used with would also lessen the need for "new"-button. Also slighly off-topic... the Adode InDesign has a tool ("Property picker" or something similar) that can be used to pick properties from a text block or from a layer and apply them to another block or layer. Very usefull functionality... This kind of functionality could be implemented to GIMPs color picker. > > Then again the "new" button is usefull when creating several layers of > > text with similar settings, but even then I wouldn't group it with OK, > > Apply and Close. > > Where would you put it then ? To the top. I think.
