    Oh, I can understand what they thought. But it is counter intuitive (for me at least). Because I did not import the JPEG, I opened it. And in all other software I know, when you then want to save what you changed, that is by default done to the original file.

    I am still clicking on the wrong buttons! A habit learned and practiced so long is not easily eradicated.

    Well it makes good sense to have the history and to then export when ready, but I'm a reactionary (i.e. don't like change) so all I can say is (a) Bah! abut also (b) it's still really, really great software

    But I am still strugling. Not only with the above.
    When rotating the image, there now is a raster drawn over it, so that I can not see anymore what I am doing. Searched, but could not find how to avoid that raster.

    What you describe is how to rotate. That has not changed at all.

    It does NOT remove the irritating raster that is shown over the picture in the new version. The raster obscures part of the picture, preferable parts where I try to look during the rotation to see if my rotation is as is should be. I also often use a auxiliary vertical or horizintal line to rotate a line in the picture until it is parallel to the auxiliary line. My (thin) auxiliary line is obscured by the raster also. That raster in a pain ......

    And it is not only shown with rotating, but also with other actions from the same list like shearing, etc.

    It makes no sense at all to break the fundamental GUI convention. If I
    open something and then save it, the result is a modified something, not
    a completely different type of thing!

    If it wants to save the history as well, then by all means do so - IN A
    SEPARATE FILE. And since it is creating an unexpected side-effect of a
    save operation, it should at least pop-up a dialog warning about it.

    It's what I call 'script kiddy' development. Irresponsible and thoughtless.

    JMHO.

    when i first opened the new gimp and went to save after playing i saw the new controls and i thought it was pretty decent. when you open a jpeg in any graphics editing program you are no longer working with a jpeg, you're (essentially) working with the file imported as a bitmap in the program's environment. maybe i just got used to it from using indesign for too many years. i agree that they do need to tweak the distortion controls though. i would rather rotate/perspective from corner handles and shear from center handles.
