Discussion

I like this, but don't like the Path effects to be on a tab on the Effects dialog. I think LPE has to be separated from the filters, as it is now. --Pajarico 11:26, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Yes, this probably wasn't a good idea - mock-ups have been updated. But both dialogs should have similar look & feel. Although LPEs and filters don't share to much code under the hood, they have the same purpose from users point of view (do magic things on paths and objects in non-destructive way). Current mock-ups seem to be consistent with planned LPE dialog discussed on mailing list. --Jarek 21:58, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Make sure you've seen http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/SpecFilterEffectDialog :) --Prokoudine 11:21, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
