Creating no-fill rectangle with exact dimensions

Recommended Posts

I know I can create a selection of fixed size and fill it. But what if I just want a frame (no fill)? How can I create such a rectangle of the exact dimensions I want? I guess I can create another selection, of smaller size, match it to be in the center of the filled rectangle (how? except by moving very carefully?) and then erase. But surely there is a better way?

Hi  @ittayd and Welcome to the forum :) .


I may have misunderstood what you are looking for, but perhaps you may find this tool useful to draw a frame.

I do not understand why you do not use the conventional rectangle tool. The dimensions of the current size appear in the status bar of Paint.net and you can fine-tune it by pulling the nubs until they comply with your wishes. Is that all too much effort?
