Re: [Gimp-user] LOVE thread - single window mode

Yse, single-window mode is definitely a new feature to love.  I mentioned it elsewhere but in every previous version of GIMP I've used to date, every time I open an image file for any reason the first thing I have to contend with is the fact that it overlaps the toolbox windows.

I tried everything I knew how in the user preferences, just to no avail.  Window positions only worked partially, because then the image window and right-hand toolbox were overlapping.  With the "Normal" toolbox hints, my toolboxes got obscured below the image window (bad), and with "keep above" or "utility" (which as of 2.6 also includes keep-above) hints it was my image window (and associated menus) getting buried under the toolboxes (even worse).  Combining everything into a single window finally means that I don't have this constant struggle between whether the image or toolbox is the one on top of the other, they're side by side and equally visible.

Now if GIMP would just remember that I want to run it maximized....

LOVE it  

Congrats to the Devs for adding this feature - also the single reason I jumped to R28 as soon as it was announced

(a few tweaks to make it reliable on Windows 7 (works ok on WinXP) would be nice but not essential)
