Remove Advanced drop-down box for "File/New"
The Advanced drop-down box for "File/New" hides essential information. Having this essential information hidden by default means the user has to click to reveal the choices every single time they create an image, to make sure the choices are what's appropriate for the task at hand. It would be better to remove the Advanced drop-down box.
A person who works in the VFX industry absolutely agreed with me when I suggested to remove all Advanced drop-down boxes from my CCE version of GIMP. Which I did and never once missed the "convenience" (not convenient at all) of not seeing the available choices for each and every dialog without first having to click the drop-down box.
It would be nice to remove this drop-down box and allow users to actually see the available choices without having to always click to see stuff that shouldn't be hidden in the first place.
Or perhaps better yet put in Preferences the option to have all so-called "Advanced" options always open by default for all dialogs.
This hidden by default behavior when making a new image affects 2.10.8, 2.10 from git, and 2.99 from git.
