Re: [Gimp-developer] Eraser Tool default setting (Was [Gimp-user] ERASER TOOL)

I think that the user didn't know that layers could be stripped of
alpha channel,
and by default Background layer is no-alpha layer.

have you tried, in the layers pane, to select the layer, click right,
and remove the alpha channel ?


the default setting for the Eraser Tool is to not erase from the
background layer. As the example above shows this is not what
users expect and therefore (new) users have problems with it.
Is there a reason to have chosen this default?

I don't know what you mean, the eraser erases to "transparent
background", which results in transparency if there is an
alpha channel, and in the background color if there is no
alpha channel.

I can't see anything unexpected here, I don't even see a "default"
because that's how it always behaves.
