Gimp on microsoft surface
I'm using gimp on the surface pro (windows 8) and I'm wondering if anyone knows how I can add a control key toggle to gimp (for doing paths) without having a separate keypad.

RE: Gimp on microsoft surface
You could try "Edit > Keyboard shortcuts"
But unless you use a usb or wireless/bluetooth or onscreen keyboard, you probably won't get far.

-There is a color-picker tool that works just like the ctrl shortcut (the eye dropper icon next to the magnifying glass)

*Gimp as stated in this forum is not compatible with win8 rt(surface)

Gimp seems to work fine on the surface pro. I'm trying to not have to carry the keyboard...
In my dreams the shift and control keys would be on the gimp screen.

Never used a Win8 Surface so this is just throwing a thought into the hat.

Do the radio buttons work in the Path tool options, if they do then that toggles ctrl and alt.

does not look like it here but that does indeed close the path.
