Possible bug in Layers > Rotate/Zoom function


Recommended Posts

The paint.net documentation for the Layers > Rotate/Zoom function states that;
"Rotation will be about the center point of the layer or selection."

 

Logically, I take this to mean that rotation will be about the geometrical center of the entire layer if no selection is made and the entire layer is to be rotated,

OR, if a selection is made, then the rotation will be about the geometrical center of the selected area.

 

However, my observation is that if a selection is made, rotation is always about the center point of the layer and not the center of the selection, (unless I am doing something wrong.)

 

Would someone please check and confirm if this is a bug, or confirm the documentation is wrong , or explain to me my misunderstanding of the function?

Thanks.

Pdn v 4.2.9 - Rotation of selection around the selection centre works as expected for me.

Are you 100% certain you don't have a stray pixel selected unnoticed that could be skewing where the centre is?

Does it work correctly if you deselect all then make a rectangular selection?

Yes, it does not seem to work properly.

Looks like the documentation is wrong. I'll flag a note to update the wording.
