button in the layers window)
I get a partial image the same size as the original one I tried to
resize but it only containing a corner of the enlarged image. I think
that this is a bug.

thought (I still think) it was a problem with me -- with my not being able
to figure out how to do this correctly.
I have a large photo, I want to make it fit a smaller space, I scale,
type in numbers or drag a corner, and I get a corner portion of my
original photo, writ huge.
Are you sure you're performing the operation correctly? Seems to me
we're having the same problem.
5-Select scale tool, set the "Affect" option in the tool option to
I hope this can do the trick for you.
