The GIMP development team is not a bunch of people hired from an employment agency. Most of them have already forgotten more about image editing, in the sense of production work, than I will ever know - I am certain of that, because they have to deal with atypical "edge cases" that I never see. They understand my workflow as a designer and all around graphics production geek better than you do - as demonstrated in the case at hand, where they decided to build part of my normal workflow into the program's user interface as its default behavior. My word processor responds to "control-s" by saving the open document in its own native format, which does not happen to be suitable for distribution to end users. My audio editor does the same thing. My video editors do the same thing. My vector editor does the same thing. The difference between "saving" work in progress while using a specific tool, and "exporting" data files for distribution to the great unwashed public, is not something that was arbitrarily made up by GIMP developers. It is a basic fact o' life for those who work with digital media of any kind. Yeah I know, responding to this subject is a clear cut case of feeding teh trollz - but see earlier posts for adequate excuses, and at least I am in good company. :o) Steve _______________________________________________ gimp-user-list mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user-list
