Some sticky bugs and suggestions for better user experience


Recommended Posts

1. Custom Palette Colors should have a delayed tooltip, declaring the ARGB values associated with them.

2. In the Colors Window, I cannot see the Value Slider anymore, isn’t it very useful?

3. Right-clicking in the Base Colors Area should enable the secondary color; we could make it clear by flashing the respective box – just like the “Add Color to Paletteâ€

1) Possibly in the next version

2) Click on "More"

3) There's a thread somewhere explaining why this can't work with the color wheel. Right-clicking on the palette area does do this, however.

4) If you need to do this, just cut and then paste in to a new layer. Ctrl+X and then Ctrl+Shift+V. Your paper analogy does not translate quite right to digital imaging: when you cut apart the pieces of paper, you're essentially just working with multiple layers. "Real life paper handling" does not have the ability to overwrite "something" with "nothing", because the "nothing" part doesn't actually exist. In digital imaging, "nothing" exists as pixels with 0 for the alpha value, so we can actually move them around and manipulate them.

5) I don't believe Auto-Level is supposed to perfect the balance of the image such that it becomes an idempotent function on subsequent executions. Tom would know more.

Your words sound pretty logical, having in mind that many things in the computers' world HAVE to be different, so that one can do more things than in real life. But here we have to be something more than exact. Supposing that a layer’s pixel has to be copied with its alpha value we could say: “Every pixel is tied with its transparency value and carries it wherever it goesâ€
