Feature Request, attachment 313346

#User Story

Sometimes it is kinda hard to find the tool you are looking for
especially when you resize your toolbox or the window resizes your
toolbox.  Depending on the screen size some of the tools even get
pushed down past the screen till you can no longer see them. I know
generally where the tool should be but when I go to look for it does
not seem to be there.


To improve user experience I propose toolbox spacers. Attached is an
image showing how this could be done. In Preferences > Toolbox there
would be a new spacer button to add horizontal (or vertical spacers if
the option to put the toolbox horizontally gets implemented) spacers
to the toolbox. Use the up and down arrows or Drag the spacer to move
it.  This feature would go nicely with the Toolbox groups/folders
feature request.

#Arguments against

One may argue this is just copying off of Photoshop and that we should
not copy from them just for the sake of copying especially proprietary
software. This is true Photoshop do group their tools like this.

#Arguments for

You should also not refuse to implement an idea because some other app
has this feature because it is proprietary and just to remain
different. This feature will improve user experience there for is a
good idea and should be implemented.
