When training as a teacher I was introduced to a non-open source product that had a reflection/symmetry tool.

When clicking on the reflection/symmetry tool the screen was divided into two by a vertical line. Anything you drew on one side of the screen was immediately reflected on the other half.

This was recommended as an introduction to reflection symmetry at Key Stage 1 (age 5-7 in the UK).

It would be very useful if Tuxpaint had a similar feature. It would be even better if there could be the option of having more than one line of symmetry for Key Stage 2 (age 7-11 in the UK). Under the Numeracy strategy children need to recognise and create images with 1 and 2 axis of symmetry.

    I've been thinking about this, and was going to add it to this tracker myself. Thanks! I don't expect it in 0.9.17, but perhaps in 0.9.18. Thanks!

    Created a Magic tool plugin that provides a 2-axis Kaleidoscope brush in Tux Paint 0.9.18.
