Set initial effect selection in layer effects widget to
Browse files Browse the repository at this point in the history
first enabled effect

Hopefully makes the widget a bit more user friendly - otherwise
the initial settings shown may be for a disabled effect and the
users is left wondering why changes have no impact

@nyalldawson , ah, I was victim of that quite a few times, thanks.

Also, what IMHO would help here is for the effect settings panel to switch to an effect that's just been activated via its checkbox. I've had countless "args" when realizing that I was changing the settings of a different effect when activating [x] drop shadow checkbox.
