Selection Rect modification - available like other progs?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to modify the selection area? Like in Paintshop Pro you can expand\contract it by x pixels. Or you can actually set from X,X pixel to X,X pixel -> select and it creates the rect for you.

Thanks for the tip!

Is it possible for plugins to interact with the selection rectangle itself? So a plugin might be created to add what I was saying: Choose it via coords instead of using the GUI.

To answer your question...

No, it is not possible to change what is selected from within a plugin.

Thanks for the replies. The reason I was asking was that if I'm doing some mockups of specs which have specific pixel widths and heights for objects, it's much easier to do if I can specify a selection rect through cords instead of using a wand or selection rect tool and watching where the cursor is.

Thanks again.

If you look at the status bar at the bottom of the screen while selecting, it will give you the height and width (and starting co-ordinates) of your selection.

I find that helps me a lot when making mockups.

Even better, click and hold the mouse button, then use the arrow keys to precisely move the mouse. I don't know if this is documented, I found it by accident. You can do this for almost any tool, even if the mouse isn't pressed.
