Re: [Gimp-developer] GIMP UI quality opinion

The second point is trivial, as GIMP's UI already drifts towards free choice of such behavior. The first and the rest of the discussion suggest that you specificaly want to have user customizable toolbars in GIMP, hence, you _are_ trying to convince devs to do so.
A more customizable GUI would be nice. I also prefer to have small toolbars, but that can be aligned both ways (horizontal/vertical). Additionally im really a fan of toolbars that contain dialogs. That means that the toolbar more or less acts like the default menu, but displays option dialogs instead of having single entries. For example if you want to change the color, you can click on the "color" icon and a color picker appears as a temporary popup. That way you can easily group tools and settings together, without having them displayed all the time.

If the user wants a permanent dialog, he should be able to drag it to the wanted place and it should stay there (single window or attached dialog).

This could be a nice addition even for the professional users. Even if you use a lot of shortcuts, there are still some functions for that you don't use them, just because you don't use this function regularly.

In the recent weeks i used MyPaint quite often. It is still very limited and far away from being perfect, but im really in favor of the approach of the gui design. You have quick access to all relevant functions, while still having a very small interface, even without knowing every shortcut.

Just my 2 cents
