Suggestion: stick some of the main tools(eg c&p) on the floating toolbar.

Recommended Posts

I would find it less tiring if some of the main features like:

c&p

cropping

deselect

finish

 

were possible to stick all in one place...ie on the floating toolbar window.

 

all that travelling around the screen for hours, to do things is wearing.. :)

 

maybe people could have the option to click and drag any feature, they use a lot,onto the floating toolbar..?

 

Also; could the eraser have its own brush width value, separate from paint brush?

The features you mention are all available from your keyboard via shortcuts. Try them out - they are very easy to learn and much quicker than using icons.

 

Copy: Ctrl + C

Paste: Ctrl + V

Crop to Selection: Ctrl + Shift + X

Deselect: Ctrl + D or Enter 

Finish: Enter

thanks..unfortunately I have a damaged arm; I can still use my arm, but I sometime literally have to pick it up with my other arm and place it on the table to use the keyboard. :)

 

So I only use shortcuts when I have to, like pasting in text...that's fine..

 

One thing I didn't see on the list, and I was going to suggest was: 'cancel operation'

Like I have used the line drawing tool, adjusted the width to what I want, but the line is in the wrong place. I then have to click 'back' to get rid of the line, but by doing that I lose the width settings I want...so a simple 'cancel operation' shortcut or tool button might help with this and other tools.

Instead of clicking back - have you tried selecting the previous action in the history window? This not does not change the brush settings.

Hope this helps. :)

Using the line tool,  the line width is maintained when you click undo, if you press the Finish ✔️ icon first  (ok got to click Undo twice)

If your line is in the wrong place, as long as you're putting stuff on their own layers, use the arrow keys on your keyboard ?
