If you press and release alt while dragging a shape with shape tool, it stops updating preview

Title says all. This is in both beta version of PDN 5 and 4.3.12.

 - open paint.net and switch to the shape tool

 - hold down left mouse button and start dragging out a shape. Do not release

 - press and release the alt key while left mouse is still held


Alt key isn't assigned to anything in the tool, just an interesting quirk I guess.

Alt activates the menus -- this is standard Windows behavior. Its expecting you to then press something like F to open File, E for Edit, etc.


If you press Alt again, then it'll resume the normal shape dragging stuff.


So, not a bug.
