Krita User Manual Proofreading as a side-product of EN to CN translation
Open, Needs TriagePublic



This is a side-product of the translation work from English to Chinese. It began as a note to myself but quickly snow-balled into this monstrosity.

As said, this list was a note to myself, and something I can make fun of otherwise I would have gone completely insane. There could be places where my words sounded direct and rude. The translation process was a lonely and intense month of rush and madness, and at the end of it, I have no mental strength left to look into these notes anymore, so please forgive me. These are not personal and you have my sincere apology.

I'm not a native English speaker and I have not elaborate these notes at all. So take my suggestions with a grain of salt.

If the richtext in Phabricator looks weird, please switch to Edit mode to read in plain text.

C02UM-P01GS: Getting Started

#: C02UM-P01GS-001
#: URI: ../../user_manual/getting_started/starting_krita.rst:47
#: Original: In the top-most field of the :guilabel:Dimensions tab
#: Suggestion: But this paragraph is obviously all about the "Content" tab.

#: C02UM-P01GS-002
#: URI: ../../user_manual/getting_started/starting_krita.rst:95
#: Original: Saving and opening files
#: Suggestion: Saving files
#: Suggestion: (The content has nothing to do with Opening files)

#: C02UM-P01GS-003
#: URI: ../../user_manual/getting_started/basic_concepts.rst:84
#: Original: when subwindow mode is active in the :ref:settings <general_settings>, via :menuselection:Window --> Tile.
#: Suggestion: It is actually under the "multiple document mode".

#: C02UM-P01GS-004
#: URI: ../../user_manual/getting_started/basic_concepts.rst:348
#: Original: :ref:animation
#: Suggestion: Animation

#: Original: :ref:deform_brush_engine
#: Suggestion: Deform Brush Engine

#: URI: ../../user_manual/getting_started/basic_concepts.rst:342
#: Original: :ref:transformation_masks
#: Suggestion: Transformation Masks

#: Suggestion: (These break our code of not making titles into links, but more importantly, it is not being translated in the content/index list)

#: C02UM-P01GS-005
#: URI: ../../user_manual/getting_started/navigation.rst:47
#: Original: and :kbd:the directional keys.
#: Suggestion: Directional keys doesn't work.

#: C02UM-P01GS-006
#: URI: ../../user_manual/getting_started/navigation.rst:1
#: Original: Overview of Krita navigation.
#: Suggestion: Overview of Krita navigation
#: Suggestion: (This shows up as a title in the index)

#: C02UM-P01GS-007
#: URI: ../../user_manual/getting_started/navigation.rst:110
#: Original: check out the resource overview page
#: Suggestion: Is it supposed to be "Resource Management" page?

#: C02UM-P01GS-008
#: URI: ../../user_manual/getting_started/navigation.rst:112
#: Original: click the wrench icon
#: Suggestion: It's a "dialogue" icon in 4.1.7, a "tag" icon in 4.2.0.

#: C02UM-P01GS-009
#: URI: ../../user_manual/getting_started/navigation.rst:112
#: Original: Settings --> Configure Krita --> General --> Favorite presets
#: Suggestion: It is actually: Settings --> Configure Krita --> General --> Misc --> Number of Palette presets

#: C02UM-P01GS-010
#: URI: ../../user_manual/getting_started/navigation.rst:110
#: Original: check out the Tag Management page
#: Suggestion: (Better use a Sphinx link here)

C02UM-P02OS: Introduction Coming From Other Software

#: C02UM-P02OS-001
#: URI: ../../user_manual/introduction_from_other_software/introduction_from_photoshop.rst:43
#: Original: on your numpad keyboard
#: Suggestion: It also works with the primary keyboard's =/- key. I think we should just remove this line. It's redundant and makes things appeared to be more complicated than they actually are. We should also explain what these keys do (zooming).

#: C02UM-P02OS-002
#: URI: ../../user_manual/introduction_from_other_software/introduction_from_photoshop.rst:42
#: Original: '*Mouse wheel*':
#: Suggestion: Mouse wheel:

#: C02UM-P02OS-003
#: URI: ../../user_manual/introduction_from_other_software/introduction_from_photoshop.rst:43
#: Original: '*Keyboard*':
#: Suggestion: Keyboard:

#: C02UM-P02OS-004
#: URI: ../../user_manual/introduction_from_other_software/introduction_from_sai.rst:40
#: Original: Then select the action 'undo freehand stroke'
#: Suggestion: We will not find this one in 4.2.0 because we've already added it by default.

#: Original: click :menuselection:Change text
#: Suggestion: We don't have this since 3.0, and the note below is too far away for people to see before wasting an afternoon trying to understand where the Change text thing really is. I suggest we remove the change text thing to reduce confusion unless we are restoring this thing soon.

#: C02UM-P02OS-005
#: URI: ../../user_manual/introduction_from_other_software/introduction_from_sai.rst:38
#: Original: the file toolbar
#: Suggestion: This toolbar, in the menu, is named "File", but in the Configure Toolbars dialogue, it is named "mainToolbar". This is very confusing. We need to make up our mind about the name.

#: C02UM-P02OS-006
#: URI: ../../user_manual/introduction_from_other_software/introduction_from_photoshop.rst:165
#: Original: Like adjustment layers
#: Suggestion: Like Photoshop's adjustment layers
#: Suggestion: (because Krita doesn't have such a thing)

#: C02UM-P02OS-007
#: URI: ../../user_manual/introduction_from_other_software/introduction_from_sai.rst:27
#: Original: duplicate the view
#: Suggestion: Judging by the context, I think this is supposed to be "zoom the view".

#: C02UM-P02OS-008
#: URI: ../../user_manual/introduction_from_other_software/introduction_from_sai.rst:44
#: Original: :guilabel:Reset Rotation are currently not available via the Toolbar configuration
#: Suggestion: They are perfectly available in 4.1.7 and 4.2.0

#: C02UM-P02OS-009
#: URI: ../../user_manual/introduction_from_other_software/introduction_from_sai.rst:67
#: Original: Just choose :guilabel:Background: As Canvas Color in the new image dialogue
#: Suggestion: We need to tell people that this option is on the "Content" tab. Or we really need to re-organize this dialogue.

#: Original: Change image background color
#: Suggestion: It is now "Image Background Color and Transparency"

#: Original: If you export a PNG or JPG, make sure to uncheck :guilabel:Save transparency
#: Suggestion: JPG cannot save transparency in the first place.

#: C02UM-P02OS-010
#: URI: ../../user_manual/introduction_from_other_software/introduction_from_sai.rst:106
#: Original: put all your images in a single layer
#: Suggestion: It should be "in a single group"

#: C02UM-P02OS-011
#: URI: ../../user_manual/introduction_from_other_software/introduction_from_sai.rst:117
#: Original: Digital Color Selector
#: Suggestion: It is now "Digital Color Mixer"

#: C02UM-P02OS-012
#: URI: ../../user_manual/introduction_from_other_software/introduction_from_sai.rst:182
#: Original: wrap
#: Suggestion: It is "Warp".

#: C02UM-P02OS-013
#: URI: ../../user_manual/introduction_from_other_software/introduction_from_sai.rst:190
#: Suggestion: You probably want to rewrite this paragraph, so it is easier to read as English.

C02UM-P03DT: Drawing Tablets

#: C02UM-P03DT-001
#: URI: ../../user_manual/drawing_tablets.rst:114
#: URI: ../../user_manual/drawing_tablets.rst:116
#: Suggestion: The Wacom section has become the parent section of the other non-Wacom sections of the "Where it can go wrong: Windows". You can clearly see that in the index.

C02UM-P04BS: Loading and Saving Brushes

#: 02UM-P04BS-001
#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:181
#: Original: show the brushes for that engine
#: Suggestion: It should be "show the brush settings for that engine"

#: 02UM-P04BS-002
#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:62
#: Original: brush settings
#: Suggestion: It should be "brush icons"

#: 02UM-P04BS-003
#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:202
#: Original: The scratch pad has five buttons underneath it.
#: Suggestion: It has 5 buttons in 4.1.7, but only 4 buttons in 4.2.0.

#: 02UM-P04BS-004
#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:204
#: Original: Showing the current brush image
#: Suggestion: Should be "Load the current brush image to thumbnail area"
#: Suggestion: Also, we need to make up our mind about that that dashed square paintable area, and the scratch pad's real name, too. It has other names like "thumbnail area", "mini scratch pad" all over the place.

#: 02UM-P04BS-005
#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:264
#: Original: Share Curves
#: Suggestion: Only a single "curve" is shared.

#: 02UM-P04BS-006
#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:272
#: Original: 0.5\*0.7 = 0.35
#: Suggestion: 0.5 x 0.7 = 0.35

#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:274
#: Original: 0.5+0.7 = 1.2
#: Suggestion: 0.5 + 0.7 = 1.2

#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:283
#: Original: 0.7-0.5 = 0.2
#: Suggestion: 0.7 - 0.5 = 0.2

#: 02UM-P04BS-007
#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:290
#: Original: different multiplication types
#: Suggestion: different calculation types

#: 02UM-P04BS-008
#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:316
#: Original: of the first two presets
#: Suggestion: It should be "of the two presets in the middle".

#: 02UM-P04BS-009
#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:324
#: Original: and then right click it
#: Suggestion: People must right click over the option's text to reveal the slider. This is extremely confusing. It is not only a problem of the documentation ("label" is easily overlooked), but rather the UX design itself. It breaks the "drop-down panel's face widget cannot be right-clicked" paradigm, and I don't see any new user can teach themselves to find this slider.

#: 02UM-P04BS-010
#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:17
#: Original: Loading and Saving Brushes
#: Suggestion: Making and Managing Brushes
#: Suggestion: Because the article obviously covers how to make a brush, and I think that's what most people care about. Some wouldn't even bother to read the article just because they can care less about loading and saving them, while the making of a brush is introduced past the midway point, many people could have missed it.

#: 02UM-P04BS-011
#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:356
#: Original: There, press the “+” icon
#: Suggestion: There, press the “+” icon on the bottom-left corner
#: Suggestion: We are shifting our focus from the panel's top to its bottom area. I don't think people can follow that without a more precise instruction. What's more, I think we should consider moving the Add and Remove button to the top of the Presets chooser.

#: 02UM-P04BS-012
#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:366
#: Original: the right-hand list
#: Suggestion: I think we should be a bit more specific. This is a HUGE panel, and this list is being squeezed and lost in the center of the gore. People might have looked at where the scratch pad is, due to our direction not being very specific.

#: 02UM-P04BS-013
#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:403
#: Original: :guilabel::Save new preset
#: Suggestion: :guilabel:Save new preset
#: Suggestion: (Sphinx marking mistake!)

#: 02UM-P04BS-014
#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:419
#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:422
#: Suggestion: These are like the titles of their sections. Maybe we don't want to add a period to the end...?

#: 02UM-P04BS-015
#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:419
#: Original: Don't forget to save the changes to your brush when done.
#: Suggestion: We probably want to indicate "Overwrite Brush" here...?

#: 02UM-P04BS-016
#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:460
#: Original: press the folder icon there
#: Suggestion: Probably should tell them the button is located at the bottom-left corner.

#: 02UM-P04BS-017
#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:477
#: Suggestion: These are like the titles of their sections. Maybe we don't want to add a period to the end...?

C02UM-P05BE: On-Canvas Brush Editor

#: C02UM-P05BE-001
#: URI: ../../user_manual/loading_saving_brushes.rst:333
#: Original: The On-canvas brush settings

#: URI: ../../user_manual/oncanvas_brush_editor.rst:16
#: Original: On-Canvas Brush Editor

#: Suggestion: I think we should make up our mind about how we explain this. It's so confusing right now, especially for translation. I suggest we pick one of the following:
#: Suggestion: 1) (As an object) On-canvas Brush Editor
#: Suggestion: 2) (As an object) Pop-up Palette's Brush Editor
#: Suggestion: 3) (As an action) Change Brush Settings on Canvas

#: Suggestion: As a user, I prefer (3), because it tells what I want to do and it interests me do try it out.
#: Suggestion: But as a translator, I prefer (2), because it describes precisely what it is.
#: Suggestion: If we use (1), then this thing must have a visible title, otherwise it's difficult to communicate between people and provide support.

#: C02UM-P05BE-002
#: URI: ../../user_manual/oncanvas_brush_editor.rst:19
#: Original: Brush editor
#: Suggestion: Brush Settings panel
#: Suggestion: We really need to make up our mind about this one. The button says Edit Brush Settings. It's hard to communicate with so many names for the dang thing!

#: C02UM-P05BE-003
#: URI: ../../user_manual/oncanvas_brush_editor.rst:32
#: Suggestion: Probably should tell our users that we can drag-and-drop those options, too.

#: C02UM-P05BE-004
#: URI: ../../user_manual/oncanvas_brush_editor.rst:39
#: Suggestion: Maybe we should distinguish more about "Settings are remembered per PRESET" and "Different Settings Available per ENGINE".

C02UM-P06MT: Mirror Tools

#: C02UM-P06MT-001
#: URI: ../../user_manual/mirror_tools.rst:33
#: Original: Hide Mirror Line (toggle) --
#: Suggestion: Hide Mirror Line (toggle) -

C02UM-P07AS: Painting with Assistants

#: C02UM-P07AS-001
#: URI: ../../user_manual/painting_with_assistants.rst:2
#: Original: to draw perspectives.
#: Suggestion: (It's not just for perspectives though)

#: C02UM-P07AS-002
#: URI: ../../user_manual/painting_with_assistants.rst:19
#: Original: while drawing straight lines or circles.
#: Suggestion: (and this one alone lacks the mentioning of the perspectives)

#: C02UM-P07AS-003
#: URI: ../../user_manual/painting_with_assistants.rst:32
#: Original: The following assistants are available in Krita:
#: Suggestion: Redundant because we have a section with description just below this line.

#: C02UM-P07AS-004
#: URI: ../../user_manual/painting_with_assistants.rst:37
#: Original: There are several types in Krita. You can select a type of assistant via the tool options docker.
#: Suggestion: There are several types of assistants in Krita. Choose one type from the tool options docker before adding one to the canvas.

#: C02UM-P07AS-005
#: URI: ../../user_manual/painting_with_assistants.rst:68
#: Original: they'll snap to one of the other corner handles, in sets.
#: Suggestion: They only snap horizontally.

#: C02UM-P07AS-006
#: URI: ../../user_manual/painting_with_assistants.rst:123
#: Original: shows several general lines.
#: Suggestion: shows several reference lines.

#: Suggestion: Also, this option in the Tool Options docker has ambiguous label. "Density", but of what? Maybe we should Give it a tltle: "Reference Lines:"

#: C02UM-P07AS-007
#: URI: ../../user_manual/painting_with_assistants.rst:125
#: Original: When you've just created, or when you've just moved a vanishing point assistant, it will be selected.
#: Suggestion: When a vanishing point assistant is selected, you can...

#: C02UM-P07AS-008
#: URI: ../../user_manual/painting_with_assistants.rst:151
#: Original: on
#: Suggestion: Maybe turnning it into a proper Sphinx Link

#: C02UM-P07AS-009
#: URI: ../../user_manual/painting_with_assistants.rst:240
#: Suggestion: Typically, the solution is as follow: 1) Create a vanishing point on the horizon outside of the canvas to the left. 2) Draw a diagonal line from that vanishing point, connect it to the point where the first beam meets the right rail. 3) Draw a vertical line from the point where the two rails meet over the horizon. 4) Cross the diagonal line you made in step 2 with the vertical line you made in step 3. Draw a horizontal line across the point where these two lines meet. You can now use this horizontal line for the second beam. 5) Repeat this process until you finished drawing all the beams.

#: Suggestion: Instead of the manual method above, you can use Krita's vanishing point assistant tool to make the whole ordeal much easier. (to the vanishing point assistant method instructions)

#: C02UM-P07AS-010
#: URI: ../../user_manual/painting_with_assistants.rst:244
#: Original: But because they are parallel
#: Suggestion: But because the beams are parallel

C02UM-P08IM: Working with Images

#: C02UM-P08IM-001
#: URI: ../../user_manual/working_with_images.rst:108
#: Original: Image color space vs layer color space vs conversion.
#: Suggestion: Image color space vs Layer color space vs Conversion

#: C02UM-P08IM-002
#: URI: ../../user_manual/working_with_images.rst:116
#: Suggestion: Have a look at the index. I don't see why the paragraphs of canvas background color and basic transforms being grouped under the section of Author and Description.

#: C02UM-P08IM-003
#: URI: ../../user_manual/working_with_images.rst:133
#: Original: Setting the canvas background color
#: URI: ../../user_manual/working_with_images.rst:148
#: Original: Basic transforms
#: Suggestion: (These two sections are incorrectly categorized under the "Author" section)

#: C02UM-P08IM-004
#: URI: ../../user_manual/working_with_images.rst:25
#: Original: If you have a text document, it of course contains letters, strung in the right order, so the computer loads them as coherent sentences.
#: Suggestion: What does this have to do with "What do Images Contain?" section? Did we forget something here? Are we trying to explain the general idea of a "file format"?

#: Suggestion: In that case, my suggestion would be:
#: Suggestion: If you have a text document, it of course contains letters, strung in the right order, so the computer loads them as coherent sentences. This order is the text document's file format. In fact, every file type has its own format, including Images. A Krita image file consists of the following content:

#: C02UM-P08IM-005
#: URI: ../../user_manual/working_with_images.rst:120
#: Original: You can empty it in the document info dialog and of course by unzipping you(R) .kra file and editing the metadata there.
#: Suggestion: You can empty it in the Document Information dialog. You can also unzip your .kra file and edit the metadata there.

#: C02UM-P08IM-006
#: URI: ../../user_manual/working_with_images.rst:142
#: Original: using :guilabel:Set Canvas Background Color in the new file options
#: Suggestion: It is "Image Background Color" and "Image Background Opacity", in the "Content" Tab.

#: C02UM-P08IM-007
#: URI: ../../user_manual/working_with_images.rst:150
#: Original: There are some basic transforms available in the image menu.
#: Suggestion: There are some basic transforms available in the :guilabel:Image menu.

#: C02UM-P08IM-008
#: URI: ../../user_manual/working_with_images.rst:159
#: Original: But there are more options than that...
#: Suggestion: Redundant.

#: C02UM-P08IM-009
#: URI: ../../user_manual/working_with_images.rst:170
#: Original: :menuselection:Image --> Trim to Layer
#: Suggestion: :menuselection:Image --> Trim to Current Layer

#: C02UM-P08IM-010
#: URI: ../../user_manual/working_with_images.rst:192

#: Original: constraint proportions
#: Suggestion: constrain proportions
#: Suggestion: But better yet:
#: Suggestion: The :guilabel:constrain proportions option

#: Original: Offset
#: Suggestion: :guilabel:Offset

Also we should mention:
#: Suggestion: :guilabel:Anchor

#: Suggestion: Basically the options and captions in this paragraph are drawn in the huge chunk of text, they need to stand out somehow.

#: C02UM-P08IM-011
#: URI: ../../user_manual/working_with_images.rst:None
#: Suggestion: This screenshot. It's really difficult to see the arrow with its dark theme. We need to change the screenshot.

#: URI: ../../user_manual/working_with_images.rst:199
#: Original: You can see the arrow marked in red in the example below
#: Suggestion: You can see the arrow marked in red in the example below:
#: Suggestion: (And also, we shouldn't even need this line if our screenshot above can tell the tale.)

#: C02UM-P08IM-012
#: URI: ../../user_manual/working_with_images.rst:209
#: Original: Resizing the image
#: Suggestion: Scale Image To New Size
#: Suggestion: Because Resizing the image is the same meaning as Resizing the canvas. We can't use resize here. We should just use what we actually have in Krita -- "Scale Image To New Size".

#: C02UM-P08IM-013
#: URI: ../../user_manual/working_with_images.rst:211
#: Original: resize the whole image
#: Suggestion: resize the whole image proportionally

#: C02UM-P08IM-014
#: URI: ../../user_manual/working_with_images.rst:259
#: Original: Open a saved file. Fairly straightforward.
#: Suggestion: Open an existing file.

#: C02UM-P08IM-015
#: URI: ../../user_manual/working_with_images.rst:265
#: Original: This is also called 'import' in other programs.
#: Suggestion: So why don't we just call it "Import"!? XD

#: C02UM-P08IM-016
#: URI: ../../user_manual/working_with_images.rst:272
#: Original: 'filename'\_XXX.kra
#: Suggestion: 'filename\_XXX.kra'

#: C02UM-P08IM-017
#: URI: ../../user_manual/working_with_images.rst:279
#: Original: you will need to rename it to to open it
#: Suggestion: Windows nowadays hides the extensions by default. Adding .zip to the filenames will do nothing. We probably need to teach them how to show file extension names in MS Explorer as well.

C02UM-P10LM: Introduction to Layers and Masks

#: C02UM-P10LM-001
#: URI: ../../user_manual/layers_and_masks.rst:25
#: Suggestion: Instead of papercuts, maybe we should use transparent plastic sheets with some objects painted on them for our example.

#: C02UM-P10LM-002
#: URI: ../../user_manual/layers_and_masks.rst:46
#: Suggestion: +The content of the lower layer can only be visible through the transparent areas of the upper layer.

#: C02UM-P10LM-003
#: URI: ../../user_manual/layers_and_masks.rst:60
#: Original: in the :ref:subwindow mode <window_settings>
#: Suggestion: in the :ref:Subwindows mode <window_settings>
#: Suggestion: (lacking a S)

#: C02UM-P10LM-004
#: URI: ../../user_manual/layers_and_masks.rst:None
#: Original: .. image:: images/en/Layer-color-filters.png
#: Original: .. image:: images/en/Layer-color-filters-menu.png

#: URI: ../../user_manual/layers_and_masks.rst:114
#: Original: .. image:: images/en/Passthrough-mode_.png

#: URI: ../../user_manual/layers_and_masks.rst:129
#: Original: .. image:: images/en/Inherit-alpha-02.png

#: Suggestion: We probably shouldn't add text to these pictures. It's already really easy to understand by framing them red. Adding text only brings about confusion and fear to non-English speakers.

#: C02UM-P10LM-005
#: URI: ../../user_manual/layers_and_masks.rst:91
#: Original: .. image:: images/en/500px-Krita-types-of-layers.png
#: Suggestion: We've just explained the filter button before. We shouldn't repeat it here. Besides, by getting rid of that "different" text, we can translate this picture's other texts as "a list of the layer types" in the following paragraph.

#: C02UM-P10LM-006
#: URI: ../../user_manual/layers_and_masks.rst:99
#: Suggestion: We should break the paragraph before "Group Layers composite..." It's too chunky and too mixed right now, it's difficult and intimidating to understand.

#: Original: however, the visibility of the layers in a group depends on the visibility of the group.
#: Suggestion: I think we should also tell people how to use the eye icon to switch the layer's visibility before this one. Not all first time digital artists can grasp the idea naturally.

#: C02UM-P10LM-007

#: C02UM-P10LM-008
#: URI: ../../user_manual/layers_and_masks.rst:125
#: Original: inherit alpha
#: Suggestion: Inherit Alpha, or we should use Sphinx highlight on the thing.

#: C02UM-P10LM-009
#: URI: ../../user_manual/layers_and_masks.rst:130
#: Suggestion: Expanding it into:

#: Suggestion: The Inherit Alpha feature works like this: On the layer stack, click a layer's alpha icon. The pixels of the layer are now confined to the combined pixel area of all the layers below it. But you might quickly noticed: it has no effect!

#: Suggestion: Here is the tricky part: By default, Krita creates a solid white layer at the bottom of the layer stack. It is at the bottom, meaning it is the layer we use to clip everything above it. But it is also solid white, meaning all pixels on this layer are opaque, so it does not clip anything.

#: Suggestion: Okay, so what do we do here? First, we create a Group layer. Second, we put the clipping layer at the bottom of this group, and above it, the Inherit Alpha enabled layers. Since groupped layers are composited separately, so the group's lowerest layer becomes the bounding layer, and all layers above it with inherit alpha is enabled will clip to this layer.

#: Original: It can be somewhat hard to
#: Suggestion: It's not really that hard to explain, don't scare off people before they read!

#: Original: Hence, it is advised to put the base layer that you want the pixels to clip in a group layer.
#: Suggestion: Hence, we can move the Inherited Alpha enabled layers and the clipping layer into the same group.

#: C02UM-P10LM-010
#: URI: ../../user_manual/layers_and_masks.rst:144
#: Original: .. image:: images/en/Inherit-alpha-krita.jpg
#: Suggestion: + On the left, the layers of the light green background and the deep green strokes are not inside a group, so they are clipped by the bottom layer. And since the bottom layer is solid white, there is no clipping at all. In the middle, the layer of the green background and the blue stoke are inside the same group, and therefore, not affected by the background white layer, and the blue stroke is now properly clipped by the green circle. On the right you can see the layer structures of these two examples.

#: C02UM-P10LM-011
#: URI: ../../user_manual/layers_and_masks.rst:146
#: Original: .. image:: images/en/Krita-tutorial2-I.1-2.png
#: Suggestion: + On the left we demonstrated how clipping inside of a group is unaffected by the layers below that group. On the right, the left example has only the yellow triangle's layer with Inherit Alpha enabled, it was thus clipped by the combination of the layers below it (those of the red circle and the blue square); the right example has both the layers of the yellow triangle and the red circle with Inherit Alpha enabled, thus they are both being clipped by the lower blue square's layer.

#: Suggestion: We should insert two paragraph below each of these two pictures, otherwise it's difficult to translate.

#: Suggestion: (We are skipping too much here. Krita's Animation workspace is a scary place. Inexperienced user cannot follow what's happening unless you are hand-holding them here.)
#: Suggestion: Now let's turn our attention to the Timeline docker. You can see there is nothing there. That's because we haven't yet added our layer as a frame to the Timeline, without which Krita does not see it as part of the animation.

#: Original: Now, let's copy these two... We could do that with :kbd:Ctrl + drag, but here comes a tricky bit:
#: Suggestion: Now we want to copy these 2 frames to timeslot 2, 3 on the Timeline. However, it is a bit tricky to use our familiar drag actions in the Timeline docker. Dragging alone does not select multiple frames but instead moves the first frame you clicked. To select multiple frames, hold :kbd:Ctrl while dragging.

#: Suggestion: You may run out of space in the left panel area. To recify that, we can drag and drop the Animation docker and the Onion Skins docker downward to the bottom panel area, alongside with the Timeline docker.
#: Suggestion: (Also, maybe we should actually remove this picture. It does not belong here. It's so confusing. Besides we need to tell people to place the Timeline docker in the bottom panel. And why isn't this arrangement used in the default Animation workspace?)

#: C03GC-P01CR-001
#: URI: ../../general_concepts/colors.rst:70
#: Original: :ref:**CMYK** (subtractive) <model_cmyk>
#: Issue: It messes up the Sphinx link and bolding for some reason. I have no idea how it works but you need to check it out.

C03GC-P03CM: Color Managed Workflow

#: C03GC-P03CM-001
#: URI: ../../general_concepts/colors/color_managed_workflow.rst:307
#: Original: As mentioned before, input for your screen is set via :menuselection:Settings --> Configure Krita --> Color management, or via the LUT docker's 'screen space'. Working space is set via new file per document, or in the LUT docker via 'input space'.
#: Suggestion: I think the "screen space" and "input space" on LUT docker are confused, we should check these labels against the latest Krita.

C03GC-P08PC: Profiling and Calibration

#: C03GC-P08PC-001
#: URI: ../../general_concepts/colors/profiling_and_callibration.rst:18
#: Original: Profiling and Calibration:
#: Suggestion: Is this string the title of the page? But the actual title has no ":" and my translation of this line doesn't show up in the final result.

#: C03GC-P08PC-002
#: URI: ../../general_concepts/colors/profiling_and_callibration.rst:60
#: Suggestion: I think we should mention DisplayCAL as well. It is a very nice GUI frontend for ArgyllCMS. You don't want to lead people off those simple bundled profiler and throw them right at a CLI monstrosity, do you? ;b (DisplayCAL:

#: C03GC-P08PC-003
#: URI: ../../general_concepts/colors/profiling_and_callibration.rst:68
#: Suggestion: We need a separated Section starting from this line. It should not be categorated under the Profiling Device section, and it surely feels wrong right now when you look at the index.

C03GC-P09SL: Scene Linear Painting

#: C03GC-P09SL-001
#: URI: ../../general_concepts/colors/scene_linear_painting.rst:113
#: Suggestion: This paragraph is repeating the same point of what came before it on the same page, but it is written in a way that I consider very difficult to read as English.

#: C03GC-P09SL-002
#: URI: ../../general_concepts/colors/scene_linear_painting.rst:137
#: Original: dual color button
#: Suggestion: I could not find such a thing in Krita 4.1.7 or 4.2.0

#: C03GC-P09SL-003
#: URI: ../../general_concepts/colors/scene_linear_painting.rst:123
#: Original: Select either a 16bit or 32bit image
#: Suggestion: This bit is confusing. Krita does not have options as a 16Bit/32Bit "Image", only in channel depth. Plus, 16 bit float and 16 bit integer are different. Since we are talking about scene linear painting, I think the author was supposed to tell us "Select 16 bit float or 32 bit float".

#: C03GC-P09SL-004
#: URI: ../../general_concepts/colors/scene_linear_painting.rst:162
#: URI: ../../general_concepts/colors/scene_linear_painting.rst:160
#: Suggestion: This is more like a comment from me on this topic...Krita could not even export HDR images to a portable format by itself...and all those OCIO stuff in this chapter feels more like "doing science" than "doing art". Is it really a good idea to promote scene linear painting to everyone (this is in the "General Concepts" by the way)? Shouldn't this chapter be put in a more Advanced place, like a specialized tutorial with plenty of warning? I fear many new users are going to flip all the wrong switches after reading this chapter, ruining their works, puzzled by why the colors are all wrong outside of Krita, making digital painting needlessly intimidating, and more question for us to answer...

C07CM: Contributors Manual

#: C07CM - P01MR-001
#: URI: ../../contributors_manual/krita_manual_readme.rst:199
#: Original: Where do we get the POT files from? Even the translated versions?
#: Issue: Is this an overlooked note by the author?

Just a proposal (ignore it if you think it is inappropriate), can we have these fixes numbered?

For example, I have fixed (unintentionally) the problem with 'Profiling and Calibration:', but it is still in the list which grows bigger and bigger. It would be hard or even impossible to fix, comment and discuss with such a big document without ordering tasks somehow.


I'm at the end of the proofreading of my own Chinese translation now. Once I finished that, I will sort this one out. Although if you look closely, every string already has their file location and line number noted.

OK I have formatted and numbered the monstrosity. I hope it can at least give some directions for you guys to look at!

Is there a need to help with implementing the fixes? If so, should this be fixed in master or some other branch?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

It should be fixed, but right now we're hitting string freeze today and the draft branch will be merged into master soon, so I have been too buzy.

In fact, I haven't even triaged half of this stuff, some of it is nonsense, some of it can be fixed, I just haven't had the time.
