kismert Posted October 30, 2007 Share Posted October 30, 2007 The first thing I tried to do with paint.net, and I ran into difficulties... I wanted to crop an image, so I used the Rectangle Select tool -- but no resize handles! 15 minutes of head-scratching and internet searching later, I found there is a matching Move Selection tool (which the FAQ misidentifies as being in the '2nd row, 2nd column'). Every graphics program I recall combines these two functions, so the resize handles just automatically appear after a selection. Even lowly Paint does this (albeit with the equivalent of the Move Selected Pixels tool in paint.net). Wouldn't it be easier to go with convention and show the resize handles after making a selection? You could then remove the Move Selection tool, and keep all your functionality. Or am I missing something? If so, what is the rationale for taking this unique, but confusing approach? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
