Interface, windows, paths

Switched from PS a few months ago and generally find Pixelmator to be an excellent replacement. After pounding on it for a while, I have these requests:

- ability to resize custom shapes window to be 2 shapes wide, with a scrollbar.
- copy and paste visible (shift-cmd-c in PS)
- ability to change interface from black to grey or white. A slider to let us adjust!
- import and export paths

- effect browser window - allow wider width (6 icons min)
- have the currently chosen text color highlighted in the color grid (when I go to try another text color)
- new document choice of background - (white, black, empty, color...)

- ability to assign keyboard commands to any menu item

I'm guessing that the paths issue might be solved with the long-teased new software coming from the company - at least I'm hoping an Illustrator replacement is in the works. Pixelmator makes great paths. Let us export them!

Thank you so much for this feedback.

Some of your request however are already possible in Pixelmator and Mac OS

- Assigning custom keyboard commands to menu items is a feature that has been around for quite some time in OS X and Mac OS. You can watch the following tutorial to see how this is done for Pixelmator: Changing keyboard shortcuts
- The background coloror transparency for new documents can be set in Pixelmator's preferences. Look for the "New Image Content" option under the General tab.

Thanks for the transparent background tip. I had forgotten it was in there...

For the keyboard commands, I'd love a panel in the Prefs to do shortcut changes, while in Pixelmator.
