Re: [Gimp-developer] now: project ideas, was: unified transform tool

Have you tried using the alignment tool?  You're basically describing the needs it was created to address.

Here's one thing that I've long wanted:

Relative Layer Positioning

I'm unsure about the name for such a thing, what I had in mind is:
  • Often, I don't care much about exact positioning of a layer in the canvas.
  • I care more about where it lies with respect to another layer.
  • I care that one line of text is on the same level as another.
  • I would like one ellipse exactly at the same level as another.
  • I want to align all the elements of the footer in my poster.
  • I want to decide whether this layer I want to move should be horizontally aligned or vertically aligned with the adjacent layer.
I'm sure I could think of a few other use cases, but this I think is roughly it.
The feature is quite evidently not new. We've all used it in many apps.

I just thought I'd put my need out there.

it would not be bad if some more ideas popped up.
