krita is missing features
Last modified: 2012-05-11 06:14:35 EDT
Description of problem:
I am at LGM speaking to Krita developers. They are looking at Garrett's F17 laptop with krita-2.4 and it is missing the 'canvas-only' feature. The 'canvas-only' feature on the left-hand side of the krita settings menu - it's missing. If you hit tab while in krita, it should show/hide the panels on the right-hand side of the screen. It does not work.
They believe it's a packaging issue, perhaps a plugin isn't correctly included or perhaps some line is missing when the package is built.
Apparently that feature is disabled in calliga-2.4, from
I see some related code commented out:
/* disabled for 2.4
// full-screen mode
vbox = new KVBox();
page = new KPageWidgetItem(vbox, i18n("Canvas-only settings"));
m_fullscreenSettings = new FullscreenSettingsTab(vbox);
I'll try poking around on irc to get the scoop on this.
and more disabled code in:
/* DISABLED for 2.4
tAction = new KToggleAction(i18n("Show Canvas Only"), this);
tAction->setCheckedState(KGuiItem(i18n("Return to Window")));
tAction->setToolTip(i18n("Shows just the canvas or the whole window"));
shortcuts << QKeySequence(Qt::Key_Tab);
connect(tAction, SIGNAL(toggled(bool)), this, SLOT(showJustTheCanvas(bool)));
looks like it's not an accident.
From freenode #krita channel:
[05/05/12 10:51] <idragosani> rdieter: I believe boud had specifically removed the feature in 2.4 because it wasn't working correctly. It's in 2.5 git right now, though, accessed via TAB
Looks like this feature will come in the 2.5 series...
Yeah, it was pretty broken in 2.4 and I had to disable it. See https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=293628.
I think we're good to go for 2.5, though, which should be out pretty soon already: http://community.kde.org/Calligra/Schedules/2.5/Release_Plan -- in July.
