I’ve often found that when doing work in RT I want to know the actual change in values I made with a tool, not just the fact that I used a particular tool. For example, say the highlight compression threshold when I loaded a photo was 33, and the third thing I did to the image was change this to 44. Now I’m 15 steps further in, and let’s say I’ve been interrupted by a telemarketer, and the history shows me that the setting is now 44 but…I don’t remember that it was initially 33 or 55, and nothing shows me what the actual adjustment was.
I can see a couple of ways of providing this information:
- Add a column to the history that shows the previous value.
- Add a tool tip to the reset button that shows the value that would be set by ctrl-clicking the reset button.
Either of these would seem useful to me, but I’m not sure whether I’m alone in that.
