Yeah, so I got the update just now and I'm having problems using the magic wand :(

What I did:

1) Resized canvas to 200 x 200 pixels

2) Used the paint bucket to make the background black

3) On the same layer, I wrote 'Test' in arial black, white color

4) I try to use the magic wand to select the text, but instead it selects the whole canvas, even when I ctrl+click the T in Test.

Is there something that changed with the magic wand with the update or something? Please help.

Dial down the tolerance.


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
