Request: diagonal selection / fill

Recommended Posts

I have often wished for the ability to select or fill regions that are connected at pixel corners instead of along pixel edges.

For example, with such an ability one could easily recolor an angled single-pixel line (assuming it was not aliased, of course).

To accomplish this, I imagine a new checkbox "[ ] Diagonals" added to the Paint Bucket and Magic Wand toolbars.

Does this work for you?

1. Make a selection roughly the correct size you need.

2. Activate the Move Selection tool :MoveSelectionTool:

3. Right click and drag to rotate it. Left click & hold on one of the control nubs to resize the selection outline.

sounds like you want to fill pixels like this:


in one paint bucket click?

seems like a reasonable feature to add (as an option) to me
