Setting Specific Sizes


Recommended Posts

So this is ticking me off to no end. I tried "GIMP", MS Paint, and Pixlr, and now this, but they (and you) don't have what I'm looking for.

 

I want to be able to set a shape (IE rectangle) to a certain width and height.

 

Apologies if the tone of my post is coming off harsh. I'm just irritated.

 

Thank you.

In my opinion, the time for choosing the values for height and width or diameter, putting that in some dialog window and let appear the shape, would not very differ from the time, that you need to just drag it in the right size by mouse.

 

BTW: You could use instead a fix size for rectangle selection and then use the plugin Borders N' Shapes.

How about this:

 

Activate the Rectangle select tool :RectangleSelectTool: (press S once)

 

In the toolbar, set the selection mode to Fixed Size, then specify the height and width in the unit you desire (ref: https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/RectangleSelectionTool.html )

 

Click on the canvas to place the rectangle then use Backspace or Shift Backspace to fill the rectangle with the Primary or Secondary color.

This is flipping cool. You help me dramatically. Just one more gripe (apologies): can I get an outline or should I use the plug-ins the users in this topic provided?

Once you have defined the size and placement of the selection, you can use any number of tools to create an outline instead of filling it with a solid color. Borders&Shapes was the first one linked - that will do nicely to create a simple frame (NB: the border will run from the edge of the selection inwards).
