Selection Resize Anchor?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I use the "center of rotation of the selection layer" quite a bit when rotating.

Is there a way to use this same "control nub" to also set the Resize mode reference?  Currently all resizing nubs appear to use the opposite edge/corner as reference.

 

Thanks in advance,

The center of rotation of the selection or layer is shown when either Move Tool is active.  It looks like a circle with a cross in it and it determines where the selection will pivot when rotated.

Hi @druneau - welcome to the forum :)

 

You're correct that, currently, resizing is done using the point diametrically opposite as the anchor. I can see benefits in having a asymmetrical resize by setting the anchor point somewhere else within the selection bounds.

 

I don't know how Rick (Paint.NET Developer) will feel about it, but I like your idea!
