Allow layer boundaries to be adjusted automatically
Submitted by Gianluca Sartori
Maybe I'm repeating someone else request or I'm touching an irremovible point, but I'm a GIMP user and this is the first time I watched at the bug/enhacement list. I did a summary search but i didn't find nothing related to my proposal.
I worked with Photoshop and I don't know if comparing my Photoshop experience with my GIMP experience is good. Anyway, I found that working with layers in GIMP is quite an oversized business. I mean that some tasks GIMP lefts to the user should instead be done by the GIMP itself.
Particulary I prefear not to care about layer size and layer boundaries, I'd like to just move layers. I'd also like to select a layer from the "layer window" and move it around independently from the point I clicked on. I found strange that to move a layer I have to click on a "painted" area and this results difficult when working with layer parts made of 2 or 3 pixels.
I think this could be considered as usability stuff more than an enhacement to GIMP. Anyway, let me know if this issue was already discussed somewhere and if someone already took any decision about it.
