Re: [Gimp-developer] Bug found: Unified transform and perspective tool fail silently when layer is hidden.

You can currently kinda get around this by setting the "Image opacity"
in the Tool options palate for unified transform tool to less than 100%.
Unfortunately, unless you also change the "Opacity" field in the layer
palate, the untransformed layer B is still in the way.

Thanks! for the tip.

Thus my proposal:

hide/remove the untransformed version of layer B while the user is
transforming it, and set the default "Image opacity" for the transform
tool to 50% by default.
This would get layer B out of the way, and let you see translucently a
bit of what is under the transformation preview as well (layer A).

Your proposal sounds good to me. I have found the "untransformed" copy of the layer being transformed to be an absolute nuisance since the first time I tried to use a transform tool.

Reading Gez's post the gimp-gui-list (, that's also the same proposal?
