anderpainter Posted November 17, 2020 Share Posted November 17, 2020 (edited) Hey guys, Don't get me wrong... I love PN and use it every day, despite a few pet annoyances I've been asked not to post about here anymore. ;?) I have a question I haven't asked, though (and which seems innocent enough not to draw fire from administrators for seeming too critical, LOL): When you make a selection on a layer and delete (or cut it, why won't PN antialias the edges to the layer below it? It'd save a tremendous amount of time blending the new edges with the colours below it (which I guess is the whole idea of antialiasing, right?). I know PN could do this, because its Eraser tool does it excellently. But it'd be soooo much easier if it could occur automatically, as part of the deletion, so I wouldn't have to zoom in and manually erase. All. Around. The deletion. Each. Time. I know effects plugins have been written to do this as a separate operation—and depending on the situation, sometimes they work okay. Why should they be necessary, though, when PN can already antialias so well? I also don't understand why the Select tools have a setting for "Antialiased selection quality" (or "Pixelated selection quality") when it doesn't seem to affect the selection at all. Would it make any sense for that to determine the results (antialiased or not) when the selection was moved or deleted? Or could another toolbar button be added that could turn automatic antialiasing on and off? (Naturally, you'd probably want it to be off by default, as that seems to be the preferred behaviour.) This seems like such basic, useful functionality, I also realize it could already be part of PN somehow, and I've just been too thick to find it. Thanks, A.
