Hi,

some feature requests:
(First off I'm no programmer so I don't know how difficult it would be)

--Can you make selecting an unfilled object the same as if it is filled, I find it annoying to move an object by accurately pointing to it's edges, even actually selecting an unfilled object is kind of tricky. ( EDIT: I have been informed that AI, does the same thing. )

--I haven't played much with plugin browser, but one thing I noticed with Shaping, it requires too many mouse clicks. I meant, after I click on Shaping tree I had to double click the actual name (e.g. Union, double click sometimes not responsive) and then click apply to actually see the result.
Maybe I'm just comparing it too much with Illustrator, but I think it would be better to group the shaping tools into one panel and have little icons that's also a button with tooltips instead of one big icon every shaping tool.

***request support for plotter/cutters Wink

that's it for now.

it works great
vinyl decals - banners - t-shirts - most designed in sk1 and cut in linux

We specialize is custom work for all sports teams and any special event. we also do work for business store fronts as well as auto decals

we love doing work for linux users

Linux, MS-DOS, and Windows NT also known as the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Thanks for sharing nice information the work is appreciated.
That is great idea to group all shaping tools into one panel having little buttons and tooltips to make work easier.
