Layer select?
on: October 07, 2018, 01:00:01 PM

What’s the best way to select a layer? When I select all, the entire canvas is selected, rather than the active layer.

I did find the layer select alpha menu item, which selects the layer pixels. This worked well for selecting a solid rectangle on its own Layer, but when I alpha selected some thin items (thin lines that are tree trunks in a painting) and scaled the layer, some ghost lines were left behind. I assume the selection didn’t hit everything.

Ideally, I envisioned automatically selecting a rectangule whose boundaries are defined by the outermost pixels on each edge of the canvas. However, I’ll settle for selecting the alpha if the edges are fully included. :)

Thank you for your help as well as your ongoing work to support Art Studio Pro.
