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!

There's an even simpler way to disable it: before clicking and dragging,
move your mouse a little bit up until it changes to an upward-pointing
arrow instead of a left-right-pointing arrow.


A: Yes.
