I just found out how to select a different image window when you have multiple ones open....

This is another nice feature of Gimp-2.7.5 single window mode with image tabbing.
A close button is supposed to be added to each tab with Gimp-2.8 release. :)

I see it as a "dis-feature".

I like single window mode but want to be able to tear off a window so I can have a second view at a different zoom factor :(

No luck I can find in 2.7.x

I am sure such a feature will be added later down the road... after much discussion takes place about the particulars. The last discussion I followed had the GUI guys wanting the separate window to be "view only" (no editing), which to my mind would be something of a regression from the current single document interface. Nonetheless, I think the hardest part of implementing the multi-document mode has been completed for 2.8 and the way that it has been done while retaining the original SDI mode is quite an accomplishment.

Maybe because I've been using GIMP for just over 10 years, but I like the multiple windows as is. Sure sometimes the Image window covers the controls dialogue box, but that doesn't bother me that much. I say let those who want Single window have that option, but also keep the same gui for those who do not. That's my opinion and I stand by it. :)

You can switch between single window mode and non single window mode

Well I have been trying to make this work... but I do Quality Control (digital scrapbooking) and I could not get the stroke tool to work to spot stray pixels....

I just got CS5 to work in WINE!!!

I still plan on trying GIMP especially when 2.8 comes out - I hope to do some tutorials etc with it for digital scrapbookers to use!!!
