It is hard to tell, but this sounds like a work flow issue.

If your open image window in Gimp has a button at the lower right that says: “GIMP XCF image (*.xcf)” then that file wont be listed. You could set the button to “All images”. But if I went into my studio to paint a canvas (painting.xcf) and later took a polaroid of my progress (Export > painting.png) I would not continue my work by painting on the polaroid. But maybe I misunderstand and you have a bug in your GIMP or gtk. _______________________________________________ gimp-user-list mailing list List address: email@example.com List membership: https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user-list List archives: https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gimp-user-list _______________________________________________ gimp-user-list mailing list List address: firstname.lastname@example.org List membership: https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user-list List archives: https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gimp-user-list
