For my part it makes the dock too wide.
I think I'd rather have a context-menu-affordance button equivalent
right-clicking on the selected layer.
Why not make it so that the dialog icons are configurable? I
personally would like to have a merge down button replace the anker
button. I always want to add a new layer when I past something into
gimp and never ever want to anker it, I think this should GIMP should
work, just add a new layer when I paste something into the image. If
I want to merge it down with the layer under it I would go to the menu
and merge it down.
Having UI customizable would be a great solution indeed. Something like
in Firefox which has a customization mode, where you can choose which
icons you want or not, and where.
This does not replace scriptable UI (which allows much more), but it
would already allow fair customization here.
Any way why not make it so that anything in the dialog's dialog menu
can be put in the icon bar at the bottom? So in this case the layer
dialog > menu > layers menu. anything in this menu can be added or
removed from the icon bar at the bottom. This way if you want the
layer mas button you can have it, if you don't want it you don't want
it you can leave the dialog alone. This could also work for other
dialogs for example I think there are too many options in the
navigation dialog. I would like it to only show zoom in, zoom slider,
zoom out, and 1 to 1 zoom buttons. Oh and possibly some rotate canvas
I think this option is the most GIMP way. Let the user decide how
they want their UI and don't force them into any one option.
