Re: [Gimp-developer] wilber in the toolbar

mr. Sikking; 
"drop images" text message would me more efficient and explicit
or probably an icon representing the drag and drop action...

Wilber itself has nothing to do with the fact of 
"remembering the drag and drop"'s just a branding sign
for me is ok - I like it there but : 
- a new user will not be informed about the functionality we talk about
- an old GIMP user ...know that already

for meis ok as is (I have no points against it) - but talking about usability ...a clean message or a representative icon for that functionality would do a better informal job.

the answer is yes, yes, yes.

yes, wilber in the toolbox is suppose to help remember that
it is a drag + drop area for opening files (as new document).
does it (and the n-i-w) have a tooltip for it?

yes, it is also a bit of branding. wilber is watching you.
(btw, if someone wants to implement that on date == friday the 13th
wilber's eyes follow the mouse pointer all the time, like good old
xeyes, then be my guest)

yes, it eats space. one row of toolbox icons, all the time.
I can see how users want that space back for something else.
a setting in toolbox configuration to switch it off?
fine with me.
