Hi. This is my first post to the list.
I wanted to know if it were possible to disable the Clipboard Brush feature in GIMP 2.6? Frankly, I think a better direction for something copied or cut to the Clipboard would be to Patterns, not Brushes. As a longtime Photoshop user (4 versions on Mac OS, two on Windows), I've no doubt that the minor hassle of turning tweensy picture X.jpeg into a pattern will be something I'll remember to my dying day. If an intuitive shortcut should be applied to clipboard/pasteboard data in a graphics app, patterns seem to me the more useful of the two directions. Much of the to-clip and from-clip activity I do is whole pictures, and whether scaled or not, color-depth-reduced or not, a brush with something 640x...@24 on it/to it, while it would make for a nice diversion or "toy" or plug-in, doesn't quite rate with me as the new bleeding-edge feature of as well-known a freeware graphics application program as is the GIMP. I presume the developers went this way because to "take it to patterns" might have meant a re-think of the pattern-making and -reading code, and there probably wasn't time or incentive enough for that: this seemed the more expedient option and so it was done. Fine. Let the user have the option of "turning it off," then, if such an option is not already present in version 2.6. So is it?
