i also plan to add a button to clipart object panel that says "resize to original size" and maybe some extra preset sizes for quick resizing?
also, what do you think of always pasting bitmap objects small? like 64xwhatever, when they are bigger than that?

What's about slider
like thoose by the "Highlight" and "Arrows" -drawing tools ?

If i could remember the size from the slider
i could always insert the clips in the same size.


>  some extra preset sizes
that must be  in percentage size to the shot resolution. to be useful, isn't it ?
i.e.
Button_1 => 5% of the shot resolution
Button_2 => 10% of the shot resolution


I think better is an pixel size box
where i could insert the size i need (or the slider like i say above)
and then the clip should be insert in this size
if i double click on the clip.

yep, i'm definitely going to add a restore-to-original size and some other quick-sizing options.

please be patient with updates, ive got a lot planned but i didn't expect to be spending the last 2 weeks non-stop adding features to the website.
