Re: The toolbox...

2000-02-05 Thread Sven Neumann
Kelly did a try to clean up this issue with the hwrapbox which is currently used in the toolbox. Unfortunately this hasn't helped a lot and since other approaches for the toolbox after 1.2 rise up it seems sensible to revert to the old behaviour (which is fine, what should the use of

Re: Removing pencil?

2000-02-05 Thread Sven Neumann
I think it's time to remove that useless pencil before the release of the magic version 1.2. Did anyone use it in the last time? It contains no functionality that paintbrush doesn't have except of hard edges (anyone needing that "feature"?)... It is a very important feature, believe me!

Re: Pathtool?

2000-02-05 Thread Sven Neumann
Hi, Daniel, please, do you follow the discussions on this list? At the moment we have got 2 Pathtools in GIMP. One which is called Bezierselect in the Toolbox but has a Path dialog (in the Layers/Channels dialog???) and another one called Path tool. The latter works a lot nicer IMHO

Hi, It works, it may not have all the features that Simon desired but it's nice nevertheless... Do you have any idea how much work is needed to integrate it with the Paths dialog? A number of new bugs would certainly be introduced by doing so. That's why I say: It's too late! I'd like

I'm all for removing the Path Tool, the Xinput Airbrush and and merging Pencil and Paintbrush. If I counted correctly this would reduce the number of tools to 24. This is a perfect number of tools since 24 % [2|3|4] == 0 which means we always get a nicely layed out toolbox. core and

Re: important: automatic mirroring to the gimp cvs

Hi, Ok. I've just enabled automatic mirroring from the sourceforge cvs back to the gimp cvs. The file gimp/PLUGIN_CVS in the cvs tree controls which paths are mirrored and which are not. If anything goes havoc just delete that file and the script will stop doing anything. At the

I'd really like to see the setting for default brush reappear. So much so that I'd do it myself. Hows this fit with the freeze? I hate to violate the freeze, esp since its been getting better. But I'm SO SICK OF THAT CALIGRAPHIC BRUSH (10x10)! Comments? I always use "Save device

Hi, Personally, I think similiar tricks may be pulled fully in the confines of the Curve tool, but as Marc pointed out, not everyone is a copy of me (or is it 'a copy of Daniel Egger'? I forget ... ;), so some people may find this plug-in to be lots and lots of fun. you should try it with

Hi, So it is basically Gradient Map on steroids? The option to use a gradient as colorsource is an extra goodie. The normal usage is colorizing grayscale photos with the use of color photos as color source. Ever tried to colorize human skin using standard techniquees like painting in color

Hi, I did not ignore the menu problem. If the "Help" bug is fixed (it is a one-line change in app/menu.c to make it last-from-left), then only the "File" menu is visible. But when I work with very large images, I do not need the "Xtns" menu at all, so I can live without it until I finish
