The problem with this proposition is that — as you say yourself —
these are adapted to your own workflow. I'm sure we can find dozens of
workflows where people would say they want this or that option at the
top of the dock. And in the end, we won't be able to find a consensus.
Moreover there is also the force of habits. This is not a good reason
to not change things, don't misunderstand, but it becomes one if there
is no good reason to change them (like absence of consensus),
especially when the proposition is to change so much.
I feel that the right proposition would not be a reorder, but rather
either update the GUI for everyone to create one own's order, or a
completely different GUI if anyone had a great proposition some day
for a better tool option's GUI.
Now I may be wrong.
But I just really feel this proposal is too closely related to your
I wonder how much of this really stems from the crowded Tool options
dialog, which make all of us want our favorite settings in the top
third/quarter. When these settings show up on the canvas, space will no
longer be a problem.
Also let's not overcustomize things. This also has its drawbacks,
because you can no longer explain things to other people (or understand
their explanations if you are at the other end) because your respective
UIs have become too different.
