If you mean it is not a Because it is not a drawing program. MSPaint is a drawing program. Painter is a drawing program. Krita is a drawing program. Photoshop is not a drawing program though it allows drawing, and similarly, GIMP is not a drawing program although it allows drawing. It's just about focus. And I believe it's fairly clear that GIMP is focused on editing, not creation. > paintbrush clone, then I agree, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't do > everything paintbrush does.

Yes, I agree. I want the toolbox to automatically adjust icon size to accommodate the tool icons shown in a reasonable amount of space. This will help encourage the user to hide tools they don't use, since the icon size can increase then. _______________________________________________ Gimp-user mailing list Gimp-user@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU https://lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user
