Suggestions to improve the precision of using the shape tools

Recommended Posts

All shape tools


Currently the mouse cursor hides a portion of the shape you are currently drawing. For example in the screenshot above you can't see where the red line will end.

Suggenstion: hide the mouse cursor when you click and hold down your mouse button to draw a shape.

Line/curve tool


1. If the handles are close to each other you don't know which handle will be selected.

Suggestion: when you hover over a handle show the default cursor (oKNBp.png)instead of the "open hand cursor" and highlight the actual handle that is under your cursor (make the other 3 handles semi transparent when you hover over one of the handles).


2. You don't know how a small line changes when you drag a handle because the "closed hand cursor" is covering a portion of it.

Suggestion: hide the cursor when dragging one of the handles.

Not a bad idea. I've filed a bug.

You going to give the user an option to use this or not?
