True, almost -- never displayed nor applied parameters initially.

This, I gather, is Cooper <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>, his first point
in #33399. The change certain makes that workflow easier to perform
I certainly glad you've done the spadework (Thank you, again,
David) and your interpretation of what to do is certainly reasonable,
but I now find the tool less facile for my work, where I really *don't* like
a setting that I've "disposed" of suddenly come back to life, and now
have to explicitly reset it away.
Here is what I propose:
1. There is now a "latency" bug where, when the curve tool is brought up
with a non-identity transform, it is not immediately applied, so the
setting of the tool is not reflected in the state of the image. That
becomes the basis of a (minor, almost cosmetic, and easily corrected)
bug report. The image should immediately align with whatever transform
is being applied by any interactive, image_map-based tool (curves,
levels, color balance, hue-saturation, brightness-contrast, threshold,
2. Among the interactive tools, the curve tool has a now-activated and
unique "persistence" feature that some people like and others don't.
In the course of fixing 1., I propose adding a "Persist?" setting. For
those who prefer to start their search for a nice transform from the
identity transform, they can disable this toggle and get the older
Is this a reasonable course?
Thank you all, for your time.
Be good, be well
