 Well, yes, that is true. Then 15 should be OK, IIRC I have been running with
 a higher number (20 or more, maybe 100 sometimes, sorry but the info is in

I am currently taking care of the tips.  I will add one about the
number of undo levels.  Thanks for the suggestion.  I also take this
opportunity to thank those who have already e-mailed me some new tips.
Keep them coming!

Regarding the default number of undo levels, I think that 5 is OK.  I
would not mind if the default was increased to 10, but I would
certainly not like to have it set to anything larger.  If the default
number is too large, we would probably get many complaints from users
reporting that the Gimp uses way too much memory and disk space.

Hi,

snip

 Some other, nice (imo), proposed changes to gimprc:
snip
(undo-levels 15)
note that the undo-levels is set much lower than what I have it, but 5
just seems... well.. quite small.)

I think 5 is too small and 15 too high. How about 10?

Regarding what Sven said about this taking too much memory, i think that there
are _a lot_ more users using the Gimp for small images (like web things etc.),
and so perhaps Gimp should be tailored to them to start with. Just IMHO :o)

Also, as far as i can see (about 2.5 metres), the Gimp can't save multiple
"sessions". what i mean is that you could save different layouts of the
various windows for different working environments - like different ones for
low colour web logo style images, and another for full colour "art" style
images. If you don't understand, this is like the multiple environments in
Delphi 5 and (i think) Fireworks 3 (and maybe 1 and 2).

Naturally something for 1.3 if anyone thinks its a good idea :o)

Bye,

It depends what kind of images and computer you work with.

For 1.3 it would be great, with names for your own configs and a default one
(symlink to a real session or any other kind of link).

Hi,

 Another idea might be some more questions when you first install.

You should probably update your gimp, delete your .gimp-1.1 directory and
try the new user installation...


Salut, Sven





Re: new stuff for gimprc

2000-04-13 Thread Sven Neumann

Hi,

 I propose that we make a few changes to the default gimprc (either the
 system-wide or user one, whichever the options fit best).

The changes should be done in app/gimprc.c. The systemwide gimprc should
be changed too to reflect those changes. 

 The main thing is that session management should be turned ON.

OK, I second that.

 and there should be a default session w/ the toolbox, layers, option, 
 and brushes dialogs.

We will have to hardcode this into the session managment as there is no
sessionrc distributed with the gimp. I'll add some code that opens those
dialogs if no sessionrc is found. Hmmm, I vaguely remember that exactly 
this has already been done, but appearantly it does not work.

 Some other, nice (imo), proposed changes to gimprc:
 -
 (global-paint-options no)

Yep!

 (info-window-follows-mouse yes)

Why not.

 (undo-levels 15)

The current number of undo-levels is fine, IMHO. At least the 15 you proposed 
are a bit too large. Might go well for web-designers (small images) with a 
large tile-cache, but...

Let's see what other people have to say on this subject before we change a
nything...


Salut, Sven

Yes, I've added it to session_init() and the code still looks ok but
it seems to do just nothing :( It worked at least when I hacked it and
I don't remember when it didn't work anymore.
