Magic Wand problem

Recommended Posts

I'm a newbie to this stuff, but I've been using Paint.net since January and I love the magic wand. Only now it doesn't turn off. I click it, do what I want and then right click to make it turn off which always worked before and now it doesn't. Please help. This happened after the last update and I'm lost. I searched and read and found nothing.

Just press Esc or Ctrl+D to deselect.

Right-click doing what you want in previous versions was a coincidence -- that used to be the command for subtracting from the selection, as it turns out you were probably right-clicking in an area that ended up creating the result you wanted (deselection). Alt+Left Click is the new way for doing selection subtraction.
