Arrow-key nudge for selections


Recommended Posts

Hi there, when I draw a rectangular selection in Paint.Net, I always find myself wanting to nudge it with the arrow keys. Otherwise, I have to get the selection exactly right on my first attempt.

I would also love to see the ability to add to a selection by holding the Shift key, as well as things like Ctrl-drag to cut and move the selected contents.

These are Photoshop's behaviors on which I depend, and would love to see them in Paint.Net.

Kudos on 3.0, by the way.

Thanks,

- Matt

You can do it if you hold the mouse button and use the arrow keys.

Ctrl+Click...

as well as things like Ctrl-drag to cut and move the selected contents.

Ctrl+X?
