Me, Simon and testers on the testing list have all tried the Stamp functionality, and, while cool, we all think the default size is far too small. Could this be increased?

The user can change the stamp size in the palette of the brush, or using keys + / -

May be is not very intuitive....

Thats fine - its great that it can be increased and decreased. This request is that it starts, by default, on a larger size, rather than the miniscule setting it has now.

Ok,I understand now. Yes we can change the default size.

We need check the resolution too, because in a 96 dpi desktop is not so small, but in the XO is too much.

Yes, currently the stamp size is 20 pixels the biggest side, very narrow on a XO.

I tested another sizes, and I think 60 pixels works better in a XO.

An alternative is to use a proportion of the screen resolution, but I'm not sure if adding this dependency in the functionality can be a good thing.

Attached a fix: sets the initial size of the stamp based on the screen's dpi.
