Question about "Erase Selection"


Recommended Posts

Shouldn't the "Erase Selection" function clear the contents of the selection but leave the selection in place (i.e. it should not "Deselect") ?

Right now there isn't an easy way to clear a selection other than using the eraser tool and manually erasing the whole thing, which can be a hassle with large areas.

Just seems counter-intuitive. I'd much rather have "Erase Selection" clear the contents and then leave it up to me to "Deselect" or not.

Or, am I missing something altogether?

Thanks,

Brian.

P.S. sorry if this has been answered already, I tried Search, but since you can't look for an exact phrase I couldn't find anything useful.

(now in my plugin pack,link in sig)

I made that to cope with losing the selection after erasing, which can be annoying when erasing on many layers.

 

Bit of a 'necropost'!

I don't understand this. You want to erase the selection but still want to keep the selection?  How about shutting that layer off and add an empty layer? It sounds so much simpler to me.

Sounds like you found what you wanted archip, that's good. :)

But for the future, try not to post (or reply) to very old threads. This thread was made all the way back in 2007. See forum rule #11 http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/2932-read-first-the-rules-yes-you-read-this-2013-12-21/

^^ What Cc4FH said. ^^

 

Locked

 

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.

Final word.

Have you people used Cut from the Edit menu? It erases the selection and stores a copy in the clipboard B)
