Description Mad Fish 2010-03-25 19:38:45 UTC
Version:           2.1.1 (using 4.4.1 (KDE 4.4.1), Arch Linux)
Compiler:          gcc
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.32-ARCH

When the layer properties are modified (composition type or layer opacity changed) it is useful to see what the resulting image would look like.

Currently layer properties dialog is modal and isn't providing any visual feedback.

Modify kis_dlg_layer_properties to show a preview of changes to the user

o Modify KisLayerManager and KisDlgLayerProperties to let the latter take charge of handling the changes to the layer.
o Add a ticker to keep change of changes to the configuration and show preview changes.
o Make the dialog non-modal.
o Modify wdglayerproperties.ui to give more room for widgets.
o ...Also add a preview CheckBox.
