For all image map based tools (Colors Tools and Filters), committing the
changes is always done by the same action: clicking the OK button at the bottom
right corner of the dialog.
This is a consistent and intuitive behavior.
For all tools which create on-canvas controls and require a specific user
action to commit the changes, 3 actions are available :
- click on a specific canvas region (scissors select tool, crop tool, blend
- click on a specific button on the overlay dialog (all transform tools,
foreground select tool)
- press Enter
Currently, only the "press Enter" action is common to all these tools. I suggest to make
the "click on a specific button" action a bit more coherent.
- add an overlay/detachable dialog (even if the tool has no information or
parameters widgets to display)
- provide a button with always the same label (like "Proceed" or "Apply")
This inconsistency between different tools really can be a bit confusing.
It would be nice if tools like drawing a gradient had a "Cancel" button
as well as an "Apply" or perhaps "OK" button, to be consistent with
things like the Curves and Levels dialog.
