Mirroring Problem, No way to mirror the image?

First of all, thank you for making such an awesome app!

However, I recently encounter a few serious problems.
a)There seems to be no way to mirror the image.... "View/Mirror" mirrors only the viewport, not the image itself, since saving it while its mirrored doesn't really affect its content.

b)this one is big... (this one should actually count as a bug) when the viewport is mirrored the rotation settings of the brush are also mirrored/inversed.... making this particular setting useless.


Does anyone know how to solve the mirroring problem?


c) Here is another bug
After saving the image as tiff without checking the option for "Flatten the image" brushes stop functioning.

a) Yeah, there is no image mirror yet. You can work around the image mirroring by using the layer mirror. With group layers you can also mirror all layers at once.

b) Right, though for some reason nobody has complained about that before even though there are artists that use this.

c) Can't reproduce that.

Thank you for the quick reply! It solves it for the time being.... shouldve figured it out myself :)

a bit more on (c) ....
I tried it many times on GIT version of Krita and on 2.5.4 in both Debian (sid) and Chakra Linux (Arch), its all the same -- Create an image, try to save it as tiff and right after "Save as"-Dialog disappears, the brush doesn't seem to work anymore but other tools seem to work.
Weird enough, if you check the option for "Flatten the Image" the brushes keep brushing away as expected.


Anyway thank you for your help. Mirroring the Layer suggestion saved my day :)

I can confirm b), it's the same for me.
I didn't report it since I was pretty sure it was already known since it's sort of obvious. Apparently that assumption was wrong. ;)

b) also applies to the image being rotated, zoom behaves very weird then.

I think in this case "mirror image" should be called "mirror view" and this menu entry should be in View and not in Image to avoid confusion.

Er... As for the text change, yes -- but it is already in the View menu, at least here.

Great! That was fast....amazing. I posted it also on KDE bugs a few days ago...maybe that's why. :)
And yes, it's already in View. Pardon.


PS It's really amazing! I never had such experience in a painting app, where one and the same brush can act as pastel, oil and painting knife at the same time, changing it's properties according to a relatively simple set of adjustments. Simply great! Thank you a thousand times! :)
