Re: [Gimp-developer] [FEAT-REQUEST] A way to quickly know layer dimensions in Gimp

I think the only reason this has never been implemented is that it has
been in the "long term goal"
the feature of making layers auto-expand as required upon any
operations outside its boundaries.

This "unbounded layers" feature has been on the wish list since
"forever" I guess - and it would make
the display of the current layer size less useful - but even them it
would not be at all useless.

I think having status codes for the title and status bar to be one of
the most appropriate ways
to display this. Maybe also add layer information to the
"Imageinformation" window (a layer tab) could
be done as a more visible way to do it, as adding a status code for it
would make it still be too
hidden away for most users.

I add a feature request to display layer dimensions somewhere in the

Could be an option in user preferences?'

You can right-click on the layer in the layers dialogue and choose Layer
Boundary Size, just under the second separator in that menu, although I
don't know the difference between layer size and layer boundary size,
and it's not terribly convenient.
