rectangle select at a specific size

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I searched on forum and help and did not find anything (perhaps I s**k at search..)

I would like to know how I could create a rectangle select at a specific size, and then MOVE IT to the place I want.

For now, I can create my rectangle and press the arrow key on my keyboard to have the desired size, but it is not really nice to do.

Any nice way to do it?

thank you!

The Move Selection tool (http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/en/MoveTools.html) can adjust the selection to your dimensions and the Status Bar (http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/en/StatusBar.html) tells you live what the current dimension are of the selection. So if you want a box of 50*142 then draw and while doing so look at the Status Bar and it will show the current status of the selection.

There is not yet a way to just type in "150" "42" to create a 150x42 px selection, but this has become such a highly requested feature lately that the priority to implement this is pretty high up there.
