Re: [Gimp-developer] 15 lines

I'd say, it depends on the images the particular user usually works with. While a screen or web designer might work with small images the most time, a photographer or scientist works with much bigger images. Different users have different needs and a default value - may it be 3, 4 or 15 lines - is always insufficient for anybody.

To come a bit closer to your needs: the guides can also be set to 'Rule of thirds', 'Rule of fifths' or 'Golden sections'. Beside having less lines they provide established artistic guidelines for image composition. Did you also notice the little 'Save' button on the bottom of the Transform tools' dialogs? (If not, click the little low triangle in the upper right corner of the dock, then 'Show Button Bar'). Then in the Guides list-box select 'Number of lines', enter 3 and press the Save button. In the next pop-up dialog enter for instance 'Rotate, 3 lines guides'. This will save the Transform tools setting as a preset. The next time you can load your preset by clicking the Load button in the Button Bar.

Kind regards,
