I don’t know, I think dragging out snippets is pretty useful, and not exactly “editing”, but I can see your point. I worked on ShowImage back in the day, I guess I need to get caught up on the current state.
If resizing was removed I would think that is a pretty major regression in usability.
Obviously we should not copy Microsoft and their schizophrenic design, but I don’t know how clear the line is between viewing and very simple editing. Drawing things and vector graphics is obviously too much, but resizing and snippet dragging or copying doesn’t seem bad.
I do agree the drag to trash to erase is pretty silly. It is probably something BeOS did to demo negotiated DnD.
I guess either way I need to get caught up on what ShowImage currently does.
Also thanks for working on this tool derpo, I too would like to understand the negotiated DnD better.
