>When you exit it tells you that there are projects with unsaved changed, but offers no option to save and quit, you must exit the dialog and go back and save manually
So this... is open source software.
I'm thinking of trying Illustrator right now because Inkscape is hard to intuitively pick up. I thought I'd have the freedom to do certain things but even after looking up how to do them they are still a pain.
I love the feeling of open source software but I am not going to suffer for it. I always hope that the the free thing outshines or is at least comparable to proprietary alternatives but it is not always so.
Its because of the number of options the Gimp presents when going to save. Are you going to save an xcf, export the file to another format, and of course where are you going to save it under what filename. Its basically a small symptom of a bigger problem.
No art program is really intuitive. Inkscape is fairly easy to understand once you get the hang of it.
The paths thing is really annoying. I remember even in Flash 8 two lines cross each other would automatically intersect. I get that it's different from strictly vector graphics software but I still don't know why I'm forced to do so much stuff for a simple operation.
I really wish Gimp would stop being touted by freetards and free/open source software supporters as an achievement. It has lacked feature parity and ease of use with photoshop since around CS2.
Basically what's happening is if you close one image that you're working on, it will bring up Save/Discard/Cancel, whereas if you actually quit the program before closing the window, it just lists all images with unsaved changes, and doesn't give you an option to save.
Ideally, Gimp should either recognize when it's only one image that's unsaved, and give you the Save/Discard/Cancel menu, or should give you options for each file that it lists as unsaved.
Honestly though, I've never run into this issue before, because I don't really ever quit Gimp without saving any files that I intended to save.
Don't even get me started on this piece of shit software.
Trying to do the most basic workflow is a constant stream of amuesement (read: autism).
To anyone who has to use this godforsaken abomination of a program on a daily basis, my fucking condolences.
So is this all we do at /g? Bitch about everything and not praise something for at least attempting something you fucking losers will never do..
Brb gonna make an open source Photoshop alternative.
I'll work on the logo.
