Re: [Gimp-developer] [usability wishlist] Fixing the off-screen immovable text tool

Hi Lauri,

I agree with you, I had the same experience lately and that's very annoying. That's indeed a usability bug, which usually means it is a feature request (because "usability bug" means "it still works but could be better").

I would suggest you open a ticket about this on the bugzilla, mark it as an "enhancement", and come back here to give us the link. Eventually someone would step up to make it so. Maybe even me if some day I am really too annoyed by it. :-)

Also in the meantime, note that there is one solution to your issue: you can increase the size of the window, then you'll see the whole text tool. Annoying, but not a blocker.

Hi list

Screenshot of the issue:

If you try to add text to the right edge, part of the inline text tool is off-screen and so inaccessible.

To me, the bad initial positioning wouldn't be so bad if the tool were movable, but it's not.

To fix this, I would propose two things:
- adding smart placement, so it would always start fully visible
- making it movable, so the user can still move it to a better place

On the IRC I was told this wasn't a bug, so posting here for comments. Personally I consider it a usability bug ;)
