Clone tool anchor point

Recommended Posts

Will this feature ever be added? Not as the clone point staying anchored in one point, that would be useless as there are other tools, but rather, after I finished painting using the clone brush, the point returns to the previously selected anchor point.

The steps would be:

1) I select anchor point with ctrl+click

2) I start to paint normally

3) I release the mouse; the clone circle doesn't follow me around but returns to the 1st) anchor point


Could the upsizing and downsizing brush get a bit faster? like alt + '+' / '-'  or just + and -

You've a few options 

] key increases by 1 ... Ctrl + ] increases by 5 (opposite brackety thing to decrease) ... then there's the mouse scroll 1-15 increases/decreases by 1 ... 15 - 100 increases/ decreases by 5 ...  100 - 500 increases/ decreases by 25 ... 500- 1000 increases by 50 etc etc


... if that's not fast enough you must be a demon speed painter 😉

Ctrl+] doesn't work because to do ], i have to click alt + '*' ( ==  ]), so { ctrl + (alt + '*' == ) ] }  increases as if i was just pressing ]. If you are working with the mouse, and not with the stylus, or other drawing pens, using the scroll to increase the brush size is a bit inconvenient as you have to hover to the 'size box' to trigger the resize.

'+' and  '-' are universal signs and they are always present singularly in the numpad. They aren't used anywhere in paint.net, why not changing ],  that can differ from keyboard to keyboard, to + and -.
