Request: make perfect quadrat and round selections
« on: November 09, 2005, 11:47:35 AM »
Maybe you can improve the selection modul to use

- hold the Shift-key to make an perfect quadrat or an perfect circle

Tip:
At the moment this works with the Ctrl-key and for circles only.
You could make an perfect round circle first and select than the rectangle tool for switch to an quadrat. (see pic)



and maybe
- hold the Ctrl-key to resize an selection at more borders the same time
i.e.
hold the Ctrl-key and resize the selection at the right .... and automaticly from the left too
hold the Ctrl-key and resize the selection at the top ... and automaticly from the botton too
hold the Ctrl-key and resize the selection at the corner ... and resize all four borders the same time
, and vice versa

if you hold alt key when resizing any object or selection it should resize both dimentions and keep ratio :)

Aha, yes, nearly perfect, but...

... "resize both dimentions" should keep the middle point (resize round the middle, not to the top left corner)

... and this is not for making perfect quadrats (but "my" trick will do that and should be enought, just an idea)
