I didn't even know you could turn off brush outlines. I took it as a
mini-challenge to see if I could work it out. BTW, to create some context
for my experience I have been using GIMP since 2003, and designing /
"architecting" web sites since 1994. Here's what I found :)
- I first went to the *brushes dialog* and looked all the options
(refresh, delete, duplicate, etc). No luck there...
- I tried right clicking on the *brushes tab* and all I got was a list of
the other docked tabs (Brushes, patterns, Gradients, Fonts, etc). No luck
- I then went to the *tools menu* and scanned through the options listed
- Then I went to the *Preferences dialog box* from the Edit menu.
Scanning through the sections listed on the left, I first tried tool
- Then I went to *Google *and typed in "*turn off gimp brush outlines*".
The second result was the one I chose, a link to chapter 11 of the GIMP
manual, *Pimp my GIMP*. After doing a text search on the page for *brush
out*, I scrolled up to see what section of Gimp was being referred to and
found that you can turn off brush outlines in the *Image Windows *section
of the *Edit / Preferences *menu. If you look under *Mouse Pointers*,
you will see an option allowing you to do this...
Not the most intuitive approach, but I did learn something new about the
GIMP, though :)
