As a suggestion to any developers who may be following this thread, it
would be really nice if there were a mouse-over that tells the user
that the yellow/black line is a layer border. I then guess that would
annoy the users who already know what it is.
Maybe a novice mode w/ mouse-overs? I know a photoshop user who is an
open-source gnu fanatic, and really wants to switch to gimp, but
insists that gimp is too difficult to use, and has some missing
functionality. There's a good chance that the "missing functionality"
is really a case of him not finding it.
Anyway, thanks to all who helped. Besides this issue, I've been quite
