I don't know how to name this suggestion... I have a non-super-fast
computer. When I export an image, I enter its name and press Enter...
twice. Because I want to accept the name and the default export options
(JPG, PNG). But... there is a little delay between GIMP receives the
first Enter and when showing Export options window. In that time, Enter
key is lost. But that is not the most important, when Export window is
shown, I press Enter key and nothing happens. It's like another window
(maybe Export file window) is on focus. So, I have to press Alt-Tab (or
click with mouse) and then press Enter.
This happen if I press Ctrl-N and Enter inmediatly.
I don't know if this is a window manager issue or GIMP itself. My GIMP
version and system:
The idea is that GIMP catches that second Enter key and uses it for the
When I press T key, Text tool is selected. In this mode, I can only
click on text layer to edit it. If I press arrow keys (left, right, up,
down) nothing happens: layer is not moved neither text cursor (because
it is not in edit mode). So, why can't enter in edit mode inmediattly
when I press T?
Inkscape, as have Move tool in F1 key, text mode is always in edit mode.
The only thing I can come up with is that, if I want to go back to Move
tool by pressing V key, I couldn't do it, because it's on edit mode ("V"
letter would be typed). As an idea, maybe this would be the only
situation that, when pressing ESC key, text layer works as layer object
and we can change to another tool. If we press T key again, it enters in
edit mode again. I explain myself?
