More precision to Blur filter value

Bug Description

I'm using the Blur filter to antialias scaled textures as well as an effect. But the lowest setting 0.1 is still too large for what I'm doing. I can input 0.03 or 0.05 and I can see the blur applied correctly, but when I do something else the value is reset to the lowest possible - 0.1, and the texture is too smooth.

If possible, could you add a 0.00 or 0.000 precision to the Blur filter?

Thanks! :)

With Filter effects editor you can make more precise adjustments to blur radius. Also, in Filter effects editor, the blur radius is specified in absolute units instead of relative to object size. I'd guess that's more suitable for your purposes. The blur slider in Fill and Stroke dialog wasn't really meant for such small modifications, though it definitely shouldn't snap written values to 0.1 precision.

Thanks I'll give it a go, but so far I've only managed to make the bitmap transparent with the Gaussian Blur. :P I'm doing it wrooong.

And I have a feeling that that Blur slider will reset any setting once I switch to another layer ...

Yep, Filter Editor did the trick and the slider won't reset the low blur setting. Thanks a lot for that tip, Niko.

np, go ahead.

But if you could add my request for the Blur slider value precision to the wishlist, that'd be cool. Thx. :)

Then I will leave it open as a wish.
