Re: [Gimp-developer] Fade length setting for paint dynamics

1. The "percent" setting is relative to maximal image dimension (ie. image
width or height, whichever is larger).
And as far as I can see it *does* work as intended - eg. Paintbrush Tool
with Dynamics=Fade Tapering, Fade length=100% will fade in/out over a
*stroke* length equal to the larger of image width and height. And pro rata
for other values of "percent". [But note that it is the maximal *image*
dimension, not *drawable* dimension.]

2. No it cannot currently be set programmatically. The fade parameters are
*dynamic options* (ie. specific to the fade dynamic), not common *paint
options* (ie. applicable to all paint tools regardless of dynamics). And
setting dynamic options is AFAIK not currently supported via PDB. IIRC this
problem has been noted before but I cannot find anything on bugzilla about
it now. Note this is a wider problem than just fade length, it requires a
generalized method of getting/setting *all* dynamic options.

Should I file a bug report for this?

What should be done with the percent "unit" then? Remove it?
