I was preparing multiple images to be printed at a local photo printing service. Part of that was to crop images to a specific aspect ratio (which works great by the way). However it was a little bit annoying that I always had to check the advanced settings check box in the crop tool settings for each image. It would be great if the tool could remember that setting for the current session so preparing lots of images gets a little smoother.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable crop tool.
2. Check advanced settings checkbox.
3. Crop the image.
4. Select another image.
5. Enable the crop tool.
6. The advanced settings check box is unchecked again.
The advanced settings checkbox state should be remembered for the current session.
I already looked at the code but there seems to be currently no way for a tool to save state between different instantiations. An easy but probably not the most elegant way would be to add a function local static variable to save the checkbox state. If you think that would be an ok solution i could prepare a patch implementing that.
I think that remembering the checkbox state is a good idea. But you should talk directly to Aurélien Gâteau (agateau at kde. org) about the implementation.
