User markers for Navigator #698
In 2.1.3, the navigator is no longer rendered using QGraphicsView, which means only the canvas pixel content is rendered. Getting the user markers back is a much requested feature, so let's take this opportunity to redesign it.
Since the navigator is now drawn independently, the user markers do not have to work exactly the same way they do on the main canvas. Feel free to submit your ideas here.
If we have different type of color selector(HSV square/component sliders/ color palettle), maybe we can have two different type of navigator?
As i know, a lot of ppl back to using 2.1.2 because of this issuse(user marker not showing on navigator). Including me , even i really want to have the latest version.

Since it's now possible to render a different cursor in the navigator, I chose not to reimplement the exact same shape as shown on the main canvas:
This is not possible, because the original brush settings are not transmitted to other clients.
We have that now in the new version. Right clicking on the navigator lets you toggle the cursors on and off.
Note that this design is not set in stone! I'll keep this issue open for a while longer to gather feedback.
It's good that you think of its compactness and size, but people would find it hard to recognize a user only by their avatar, which users tend to change even more often than name (not saying about users without it at all). So let us still have an option to toggle user names and layers. It's easier to find trolls this way.
