It's not a huge pain, but is definitely something I've noticed cramps some of the custom palette sets out there. Working with that constraint isn't a dealbreaker for me. I'm chipping away at making custom palettes that use some of the characters from for some "modern" art that gets displayed in a unix terminal. The unicode export and custom mirroring are killer features! I think being able to map a shape would be the logical conclusion to that! Which brings me to... where's the best place to put my donation towards the future development of this application!

As I begin to mess around with custom fontmaps for this GLORIOUS application. I'm now wondering this: is there a way for me to customize how it deals with drawing rectangles and ovals? A way to define things like left-corner, top-edge, right-corner, and so on. I searched and can't find anything off hand. I'd hazard a guess that currently the best way for me to approach this is to use the cp437 layout, though some of the more bizarre fonts by polyducks and others seem to forego this layout. :-)

I'm experiencing a bit of confusion in regards to layer transparency. I'd love some enlightenment.  Say I create a new image. For the First layer I apply the background color to the whole image to some color, say blue. Next I create a second layer. I start drawing glyphs on this layer with the background deactivated, expecting the background to be picked up from the first layer, but instead the glyphs show a black background. If I activate the transparent background then the /glyphs/ seem to become instead of my expectation of the /background/ being transparent.  What's the proper workflow for transparency?  I seem to be misunderstanding a fundamental concept.
