Those are great new features, but this makes tweak tool even more
cluttered, wouldn't clones be better for such funcionality? I would
propose to split it into:
1. Clone tool ( or Spray/Aerograph tool) - with buttons for creating
new clones and changing properities which are currently hidden under
"Create tiled clones" window, like align, distribution, size,
rotation, blur, opacity and color. This tool would operate only on
2. Tweak tool, which would make the only thing not possible with
clones - change shape of different object(s) (push, shrink, attrack,
roughten) , and if eventually used on linked clone - unlink them.
Current solution encourages users to create zilions of similar objects
first, and then radnomise them using smudge tool, which doesn't seem
to be elegant way of doing things and will result in huge ang ugly svg
