« on: July 08, 2013, 11:13:34 PM »

Can you elaborate a little more on what you mean by "deleting a selection"?

There are various things you *might* mean:
  • You might mean "how do I make an arbitrary rectangular region on an image black or white or covered up in some way"; for that you would select the region and choose one of the items at the bottom of the SpecialFX1 or SpecialFX2 menus.  The "Patch text/contents" item will try to replace the selected region with the best color automatically.
  • You might mean "how do I CROP an image to remove the area OUTSIDE of a selected rectangle"; for that you would use the CROP button on the toolbar (or Ctrl+R hotkey or item from Edit menu).
  • You might mean "how do I remove a vertical or horizontal STRIP from the middle of an image"; for that you would use the SPLICE menu items under the SpecialFX2 menu, which will let you remove interior sections of the image and is sort of the opposite of using crop.

This can be done with the "Draw highlighting rectangle/circle shape" button.
Set Inner Color to white and Blend Mode to Normal.
Transparency all the way up, 255.
Uncheck Shadow and Border Color.
It will keep these settings for your next capture and/or your next "Draw highlighting rectangle/circle shape" operation, until it's changed.

 (see attachment in previous post)

Setting the inner color to white in "Draw highlighting rectangle/circle"  also affects and works in "Patch text/contents".

edit- well maybe a little...not much even, sorry, working too fast
