Well habbits or not, I still wonder why it is explicitly disallowed to save as something other than xcf. As I said, allowing that+keeping the export option makes all users happy. Now, a way that apparently some part of the users like and some don't is forced to all, while it is not necessary to force it. GIMP is not the only program I use, so yeah I keep pressing CTRL+S thinking that should save whatever I'm editting to whatever file extension I gave it, just like in Inkscape, Libreoffice, KDevelop, etc. To me, "exporting" to a png does not feel like exporting at all. If the original image is something bitmappy without layers, there is no loss, and I use GIMP mostly for that. If it did have layers, GIMP would already warn. I don't use GIMP often enough to get used to learn the fact that it's the only program I have where CTRL+S does not save, but rather wants me to make a temporary projectfile. -- Anoko (via gimpusers.com) _______________________________________________ gimp-user-list mailing list email@example.com https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user-list
