selection by polygon

Recommended Posts


I would like to know if there is a solution to make selection with a suite of straight lines such as polygons

Selection with polygons is very much quicker when you work within objects with simple geometrical shapes such as buildings as we do

A true polygon selection tool is being considered, as can be seen in the Popular Feature Requests thread, but there's no ETA.

The current workaround is by creating a temporary layer and drawing out the polygon with the Line / Curve tool, filling the center, using the Magic Wand to select the shape, then switching back to the destination layer and doing whatever it was you were planning for that selection.
