(This is a canned response, please forgive any broken formatting)

This bug tracker will shortly be moving to Github. As part of this process, we are reviewing old bug reports on gna.org.

This report appears to be a request for a new feature, but discussion has dried up and/or there are no patches or mockups attached. Please help us
to move it forward, which will ensure that it is retained during the migration.

While in the past our bug tracker here on Gna! has kept these stale feature requests around, in practice we have found that development moves too
fast for this to be a valid approach. Please consider that developers need working plans and agreement before we get stuff done.

With that in mind, if you're monitoring this report, here's what we need to be reassured that this request is still relevant:

  • If this request generated no responses, sorry.

But please treat that as a HUGE sign that
this tracker isn't receiving enough eyeballs
for your idea to have received the
discussion it needs.

There are discussion forums with greater reach:
Twitter: @MyPaintApp or #mypaint
Forums: http://forum.intilinux.com/#c9
Or even the mailing list at

Please link to any ongoing discussions,
if you haven't already done so.

  • If you think this request is not stale, please

resubmit it on github itself,
at https://github.com/mypaint/mypaint/issues
Please do this only if you have mockups, use cases,
patches or sample code implementing the feature:
if you don't yet, then it needs more discussion.
The linked resources above are the place for that.

In short, please remember that a bug report is not a widely read discussion forum, and that feature requests must be moved forward. Kindly
remember too that our developers don't have the time to monitor all the forums all of the time.

Might be overkill. Would the recently added ability to set to widths and heights in mm, inches, and other units with configurable dpi suffice?

Patches welcome, if it can be done sensibly without overloading an already increasingly cluttered dialog.

it would be nice to have some predefined frame format proposed ( a4,a3,a2, hdtv, the classic ones... )
And MyPaint could keep in memory the last one used.
it would be cool in case you work often with the same format.
