Those are great new features, but this makes tweak tool even more
cluttered, wouldn't clones be better for such funcionality?
Tweak tool (except path editing modes) works on clones perfectly.
1. Clone tool ( or Spray/Aerograph tool) - with buttons for
new clones and changing properities which are currently hidden under
"Create tiled clones" window, like align, distribution, size,
rotation, blur, opacity and color. This tool would operate only on
That's a new Spray tool that hopefully will be coded one day. The
tweak tool does only tweaking :)
2. Tweak tool, which would make the only thing not possible with
clones - change shape of different object(s) (push, shrink, attrack,
roughten) , and if eventually used on linked clone - unlink them.
I floated the idea of separating Tweak into two, now three tools -
transform, path edit, color. But I didn't hear much support for this,
and now I tend to think that a single "soft action" tool with submodes
is better than several.
Current solution encourages users to create zilions of similar
first, and then radnomise them using smudge tool, which doesn't seem
to be elegant way of doing things and will result in huge ang ugly svg
Nothing ugly or huge. Just use tile cloner to do the original
scattering and work on the clones with Tweak tool:
