How to stop layer windows to resize?
Hey guys,

i wonder, is it possible for gimp to have those windows with text(small in layers) to keep same height-width..

its very annoying to make something in gimp with a lot of layers, they become small! too small, and then when i want to delete many layers, they stay small.

I want to be big windows all the time.

So here is the picture for better understanding..

its really annoying to see this is an active issue, since you will always bump in it sooner or later by using gimp!

when i start doing my stuff i ussually take 1200*1000px canvas.. or similar.. after some time i almost always make a bigger canvas like 1200*1900px.. and then maybe more like 1200*2400px... After some work i might cut canvas into 1200*1400px

picture: http://imgur.com/dNoUo
At 1. canvas size is 1200*1900px, layers windows width is at 24px = small!

at 2. canvas size is 1200*2200px and layers windows width is at exeptional small 21px!

At 3. these are two layers that i made by making this very picture. it has a comfortable 36px width!

Either they hate gimp so much or what they were thinking??? bigger = easier selection = more comfort using program.

but to scroll is easy.. you have mouse wheel and i still ALWAYS see like 15-20layers at the time! its a lot. Who can work with 20 layers at the time Smile so can this still be fixed?

Selecting layer is used more times than scrolling the layers list. It cant be otherwise.
