First of all, the biggest, and newest feature about the gimp 2.8 is it being all in one window. Have you changed your settings to it? If not here's what you do: go to "windows"> then click "single-window mode"

Everything is pretty much the same, except for some shortcut keys. I don't know any as I primarily use gimp to turn my sai files into png. I would have tried drawing in this new version but it does not work for wacom tablet users.

Oh and if you'd like to save as anything other than .xcf you don't use the "save as" feature, you now must use the "export as" feature. The short cut key is almost the same, but instead of pressing "s" you press "e" (ctrl+shift+e)

Other than that I've been too frustrated at the fact that it doesn't work for my tablet. So I haven't messed with it. Good luck ;3

It's a wacom, I'm betting your pen sensitivity isn't working. Because gimp 2.8 doesn't work for wacom users.

Nope. I threw a fit when I found out, myself. I guess we'll just have to wait until someone fixes it :\

:smile:

Alright, so what I have found, is maybe your tablet needs to be updated. That can usually be found in the bamboo dock, which is automatically installed on your computer when you install all of the other software. (I have a wacom bamboo create, so keep in mind things may be different) I just thought this might help!
