Selection with fixed aspect ratio


Recommended Posts

For the rect select tool, I have set to Fixed Ratio mode. However, when the selection area reach the edge of image, the selected area will loose the setting ratio and increase at non-edge side. Is there an option can make it done like in ps that if one side reach an edge, the area will not increase any more?

 

Thank you.

Greetings corset,

I don't think that the aspect ration is changing (Your aspect ration is something like like 4:3 or 16:9 and such) . I think that before you release the mouse or stylus button; there is some hand slippage that adds pixels to the rectangle, but maintains the aspect ratio. If you need a constant dimension for your Rectangle Selection Tool perimeter; enter your desired height and width and set the tool to 'Fixed Size' and then move it to your desired location on the Canvas.

I have recorded a video that i think can better explain what i meant. I set the ratio to 1:1, it works fine before reach the edge.

This has been reported to me a few times, and I've been meaning to improve this. Hopefully I can get to this within the next few months. This year is going to be busy for Paint.NET :) https://blog.getpaint.net/2018/12/26/whats-next-for-paint-net-in-2019/
