years, I'm currently using it to make tiles for a game similar to the 1994
game Outpost,

Hope this is the right place for user feedback. I'm not a typical user -
I'd prefer to spend my time in emacs, to be honest, and I still use

2. Once one gets everything working, the panels are kind of unintuitive,
the arrow that points left doesn't collaps the thing, but comes up with
another menu.
3. Things are generally confusing to people coming from a program like

I wouldn't be complaining if I wasn't willing to help (though I'm only free
on weekends, I have a job, yay) and I completely understand if power users

in particular seems like a bug, maybe not with Gimp, but somewhere.

Thanks for reading!
