Not correctly

I set the angle of the light source -45 in drop shadow (Layer style). See attachment.
Shadow moves to light source. It is not corectly. Shadow should be located in the lower right corner.
The location of the shadow is not correctly in another angles too.
Sorry for my English.

Circle Point

I understood bug.
The angle of the light source, location of the shadows are correctly.
Circle Point is incorrect. See attachement.
Circle Point is must be show angle of the light source.

The same problem in Inner Shadow.
Circle point isn't moving correctly too.
The shadow should be located on the opposite side of the circle (object).

Only GUI control is not correct, the value itself is correct
Comment 4 Victor Wren 2018-01-21 18:03:57 UTC
To clarify, the GUI control corresponds to the angle in the numerical selector box, but neither of them corresponds to the angle of the shadow in the preview  on-screen.  So the number agrees with the GUI spinner control (i.e. 0 is vertical, 90 is to the right, 180 is at the bottom and -90 is to the left), but the controls don't agree with what is actually on the layer.

i.e. "0" puts the spinner dot at the top, the light source at the right, the shadow at the left

"90" puts the spinner at the right, the light source at the top, the shadow at the bottom,

"180" puts the spinner at the bottom, the light source at the left, the shadow to the right,

"-90" puts the spinner at the left, the light source at the bottom, the shadow at the top.

As the number increases, suggesting a clockwise rotation of the light source, the spinner moves clockwise as expected, but the apparent light source on the preview rotates counter-clockwise.

This is probably a simple subtraction error somewhere.

Layer Styles UI: fix for angle selection, small UI tweaks

1, Fix for Bug 372169 - GUI angular control for Shadow light source shows incorrect angle (spinbox is correct)

Adobe’s angle selection dial widget differs from QDial by 90 degrees. That creates the inconsistency between settings dialogs and layer effects. In this diff, angle selection is moved into dedicated widget, KisLayerStyleAngleSelector, which solves this problem for all layer style settings dialogs. Also lessens code duplication in this area.

2, Label alignment unification with proper use of QFormLayout
