Show icons on hover in 2.99.12

Where is option for changing how icons hover when clicking on them ?

Is this the Toolbox ‘Menu mode’ that shows in Gimp 2.10 just under the Use tool groups toggle ?

I cannot find it in Gimp 2.99.12

It might be there somewhere / missed out / considered not required by the devs.

I can’t find it.

That was roughly what I indicated. You can post a bug report at Issues · GNOME / GIMP · GitLab asking for the menu entry

EDIT: Is it a similar problem as this ?

In the meantime, a bit of digging, it looks like “Show on hover in single column” is the default.

To change to either of the other two, “Show on click” / “Show on hover”, add the appropriate line

(toolbox-group-menu-mode click)
(toolbox-group-menu-mode hover)

to the Gimp 2.99 User profile gimprc file.

In my installation, that is ~/.config/GIMP/2.99/gimprc but it might be somewhere else ~/.var/app/org.gimp.GIMP/config/GIMP/ for example.

…and this works here, (sorry, I got the ~/.config/GIMP/2.99/ label mixed up. Too much haste…etc…)

It doesn’t work for me. I’ve added in every gimprc file I’ve found.
I want that subicons stay when you hover on the icon.

More digging around and the user gimprc file overwrites and any edit is lost.

Look like you are out of luck.

Post a bug report:

Edit: A right mouse click still works and brings up the drop-down menu for switching tools. Might not be very convenient if using a graphics tablet.

comparison hover right click example:

Post that bug report.
