|I just discovered that tools can be ungrouped in GIMP 2.10
(Sure, I can hold onto the concept that a tool is made visible by looking
inside the group of related tools, but with my particular cognitive
disorder, things that aren't visible tend to not exist in any functional
sense. Imagine if the location of absolutely everything in the world were
like the last time you lost your keys -- everything, all day, every day,
your whole life.)
Ungrouping the tools I use regularly makes it possible to have the toolbox
in 2.10 appear as it always has in GIMP 2 -- a major cognitive help.
Oh And: Now I see that the layers tab can be dragged to the set at the top
of the column and the brushes can be dragged to the set at the bottom. It's
nice not having the layers panel disappear until I look where the brushes
always were and then keep finding the brushes have disappeared until I
Yes, having things only truly functionally exist when they're in view is
weird. Be very glad you can take it for granted that things exist in
locations on routes that you can keep track of without applying total
conscious effort every single time.
Picture GIMP in your mind's eye. I can't. If you were to ask me where
things are in GIMP when I don't have the app open, I couldn't tell you,
even if you offered me an all-expenses-paid trip to Mars.
