How do I scale a layer in MyPaint?

Currently using version 1.2.1+git.bcf5a28.dirty


As far as I’m aware the only way to do this is to open the layer in another image editor, such as GIMP or Krita, using the function “Layer->Edit in External App…”, doing the resizing there and then saving it to update mypaint with the new layer. Keep in mind that you will lose information about brush strokes for that layer and also to save the image as a transparent png (in the external editor).

I’m not sure if the “edit in external app” command has a keyboard shortcut bound by default, but if not I would create one if this is something you need to do often.
