lately at a user came up with a [feature request]

' [...]
I add a feature request to display layer dimensions somewhere in the
main window or the layers one. May be display only the current layer
sizes, but would be great to see all layer dimesions at a glance.
Could be an option in user preferences?'

As feature requests shall be discussed at the mailing list first,
I bring it up here for discussion.

I verified that the desired information is indeed missing, this is not
a duplicate in Bugzilla and there were no discussions about this
topic on the GIMP mailing lists before.

To solve this for single layers I can also imagine to let the user
include layer width, height or dimensions show in the title or status
bar und add variables for them to Preferences/Image Windows/Title and
Status. To have this information for all layers together probably
a new column needs to be added to the Layers dialog.

As Joao already pointed out at, [automatic layer
boundary management] is on our roadmap for the far future.

Do we consider such a feature useful?

I have personally nothing against it if someone was to decide to
implement this and propose a patch.


Kind regards,
