I am rather shocked. For someone who doesn't really know me, that's some pretty bold statements. But then again, I've come to expect that from you, dear Sven, so I don't really take it too seriously. You are still upset from when I called you an asshole about a year ago. :) > I'm pretty sure that we can live better without timecops assistance.

On the side note, one thing that could use serious serious improvement is the preferences dialog. I think, the "Tree" structure of organizing preferences is truly confusing. Reserve tree structures for directory lists and things like that. Someone using the Gimp for the first time would expect preferences dialog to look something similar to a tabbed notebook where each setting is grouped by section, which occupies one tab of the notebook, etc. Also isn't it a bit extreme to have a separate window for each "directory" the Gimp uses? Wouldn't it be much more "intuitive" to group them all inside one section, or allow selection from a combo box, or something along these lines? All of that again could be grouped under the "Directories" tab on the preferences notebook. I know this "tree preferences" stuff was popularized by that obsolete desktop environment called "Gnome" but still, that doesn't mean you have to blindly copy losing designs. tc -- ・‥…━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━…‥・ timecop at japan.co.jp | OA通信サビース株式会社 | NTT DoCoMo I thought everything that Linus Torvalds is involved with was divine perfection?
