Description

I have trouble editing the drawn mask opacity (the one you set by moving the mouse over the mask object and spinning the scroll wheel while holding down ctrl). Both in the "show mask" mode and the regular mode the refresh of the display once the image gets complicated is too slow, and the mousepad's scroll too quick, for good control.

So it would be nice if I could type in a % opacity value a that point. That is, typing a number while editing a shape sets its opacity.

Or maybe if I could see the value somewhere. A little "nn%" at the top of the screen (where the "ctrl+scroll to set shape opacity" appears) for instance.

Or maybe ctrl + right click pops up one of the fancy slider controls like the modules use.

Maybe this could be part of the Mask Manager, if you don't want it on top of the image. That is, selecting a mask in the Mask Manager would show controls for that mask in the Mask Manager, and there would be the opacity control.
