"It would be nice if..." there was some way to see the nodes of BOTH paths while editing one.
"Does anyone know if..."
...it's possible to display both at the same time?
There was this script: http://registry.gimp.org/node/25086
that labels the points of a path.
I didn't like it though, so wrote my own from scratch: http://silent9.com/incoming/sc ... points.scm
This can be used to number the points of a path on screen.
EDIT: Btw, I edited the script and changed the output of the gimp-message handler
to ERROR-CONSOLE because I noticed in the Toolbox that it's possible to add a tab to
see the Error Console.
I also added some gimp-messages to (try to) dump some progress information: I added this:
(gimp-message (string-append "Segment#" (number->string counter "%") "of Stroke#" (number->string strokecount "%") "of TotalStrokes:" (number->string (car strokes1) "%")))
(while (< (+ counter 1 inLap) L1)
I always run with the error console open, but most folks do not. I could add a switch "log status to error console".
