Grokking The Gimp
Previous Page Home Next Page Toggling the Layer Boundary

Careful alignment or color matching between layers is often required for layer edges that are overlapping or abutting. The layer boundaries of the active layer can be seen in the image window, even when the layer contents cannot be seen. This boundary, consisting of a black-and-yellow dashed line, can impede the precision with which alignment and color matching work is performed. Under these circumstances it is useful to visually toggle off the layer boundaries, which is easily done with the Toggle Selection function, found in the Image:View menu. Alternatively, C-t can be typed in the image window. The visibility of the layer boundaries is restored by toggling a second time.
