Thanks for the reply, but that's not quite what I'm looking for. Flipping the pen around is actually very cumbersome for me. Yes, if I turn the pen around and use the "eraser" then the previous tool selected by the "eraser" will be activated again. However, I need the "eraser tool" far more often than I would use a normal eraser, and so I would like a quicker way to change tools. In particular, I would like to do like in Xournal, where the "right mouse click" event activates the eraser. Also, maybe I'm just tremendously uncoordinated, but I drop the pen half of the time when I'm trying to flip around to use the eraser. > > GSR > > _______________________________________________ > Gimp-user mailing list > Gimp-user@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU > https://lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user _______________________________________________ Gimp-user mailing list Gimp-user@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU https://lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user
