Hi all, this forum seems a bit inactive but I thought I'd try here first. I'd reply in the thread for the tutorial in question, but replies are disabled there.
I've been wanting to set GIMP defaults for ages and just found Fencepost's extremely helpful tutorial
. Thanks very much Fencepost, worked like a charm!
There are 2 other things I'd like to set as default which I've not figured out yet. I'm not sure if they're even possible?
1. I'd like the Rectangle Tool to always be pre-selected on GIMP startup. Sometimes the Ellipse tool or another tool seems to be preselected on launching GIMP, but 99% of the time the Rectangle select is what I need.
2. I'd like the Stroke line width, which defaults to 6px, to be set to 2px as again that's what I use most of the time. I found http://developer.gimp.org/api/2.0/app/GimpStrokeOptions.html
ern has a width property, but I'm not sure how it translates to what you put in the defaults scm file? I took a punt and tried different variations like (gimp-stroke-options-take-dash-pattern "width=2") but none of them worked.
I would be very grateful for any suggestions as to how to edit the script to set these defaults.
Many thanks in advance for any help.
