[Gimp-user] GIMP 2.8.2

Dear GIMP fundi’s,

I got the Gimp 2.8.2 [my third evolution] and I must say is awesome. Good to see skills and hard work strutted in public without the traditional teething troubles manifesting themselves. Well done!

A bit difficult for a non-IT specialist to install ’cos the GIMP set-up and the “help” section didn’t want to meld. I rather suspect that using the file “run” facility instead of the “save” would’ve avoided the issue but I need to backup the original in case of future problems elsewhere.

Initially the uninstall app never cleared the system of Gimp 2.6.12 and so the new installation picked up some bad habits from the get-go but I then purged my [Check Disk, Ccleaner, MRT etc.] XPsp3 of all traces of the old and re-installed the new. Then I hadda hunt around to enable my “help” and “context help” to link with the help/F1 icons. But now all’s well! Thank you werry much!

Just one gripe though! Can we disable or lose the decimal/fraction brush slide sizing facility. Whole numbers in this context would be perfect. To fiddle with fractions offering a 100th of a step at a time is really tedious and, imho, unnecessary. Is there some file somewhere where I could gently disable this feature? And how? Tia!

Here’s to the next ten years and, again, many thanks for all of youse’s tireless efforts…
