yes, i do need to change them - but why nothing is saved - even i hit the"save button" in the toolsettings-dialog? i think the functionality to change and save is wanted - but does not work - it worked not in 1.3.8 - and it does not work in 1.3.10 - or maybe i'm unable to get it working? if i start gimp from console all it says while clicking the save button is "Save clicked" - maybe this functionality is'nt included yet? > I have no idea how Photoshop handles layers, but if new > GIMP layers came up at some arbitrarily small size, in a lot of cases > you would have to resize them anyway.

You may argue that you would have to do that all > the itme, but then what is the"correct" default size (hint: there > isn't one). how about this: if i create a layer, there is no size, because the layer contains nothing, if i put pixels in, gimp can always get the outer pixels which mark the max x-size/y-size of my layer, so gimp would always "know" the size of the layer and nobody should ever need think about"layer sizes". (except for shrinking etc.) about resizing a layer i'd like to say it's not really handy to enter the dimension-values x/y by hand - there should be a visual tool, maybe similar to the crop-tool to do layer-resizing and stuff. greets, falk -- " we only use small characters because it saves time. moreover, why have two alphabets when one will do? why write capital letters if we cannot speak capitals?
