Re: [Gimp-developer] [enhancement] Improved layer-visibility icons


as we already realized the current solution to show hidden layers' icons in groups is a bit confusing. IMO less opacity doesn't change this much. A slashed icon indeed has more visual weight than a non-slashed one. But this suggests exactly the opposite of the actual visibility. The second drawback is that the user has to keep a third state in mind: a visible layer in a hidden group. Actually two states are sufficient - a layer is visible or not. Informations about visible sublayers are relevant only if the group itself is visible. So why not simply hide the icons in the sublayers if the group itself is hidden? This would show the facts and only the facts and thus be less confusing.

Best regards,
