active preview window and tool function

Luthien
When selecting from say colour/level or other tool and the tools dialogue opens,
the image windoiw then dulls into background as it is no longer the active
window. So when you make an adjustment, have to keep mouse clicking back and
forth to see 'real' effect. Is there a way to prevent this and keep image as
should be and not semi-transparent with the desktop image showing through each
time you click into tool?

If you use the keyboard accelerators to activate a tool, you can stay
focused on the image window.  If you hover your mouse over the tool button,
the tooltip will show at the far right the accelerator key used to activate
that tool.  For example, 'M' will activate the "Move" tool.

The switching back and forth is not an issue with GIMP; it is the window
manager that is changing the focus, and is outside of GIMP's control.
