    auto-hiding stuff and the size of the brush

    Minor nit but it kept bugging me last night as I airbrushed...

    I think it would make more sense if GUI elements hid themselves when the *edge* of a brush/tool touched them, than the current situation where they hide only if the center of the tool (the OS mouse location) touches them.

    When I work at a level sufficiently zoomed to have a large tool size ring, I have to be sure to move everything out of the way before I do some careful strokes.

    (Yes, I know that likely involves circle-intersects-rect which is more intense than point-in-rect testing, but the majority of the time a simpler rect-intersects-rect test will save half the work.)

    Note that you can hit the 'Enter' key to hide all the UI elements, or hit the 'Tab' key to retract all the UI elements. I think a right-click of the mouse does as well.
