By Color Dialog
On page 311 of the Gimp Manual there is a By Color Selection window. Is this window in version 2.8.4; I can't find it.
Thank you. Smile

I don't know where page 311 is but is this what you are referring to. ( I don't think it is, in what context are you selecting by colour)

Double click on either the foreground or background colour icon to bring the dialogue up.

edit: Ok, had a bit of a walk and cleared the head Smile

This is from gimp 2.6 help section 3.1.1. Activating the Dialog
Quote:The “Colors” dialog is a dockable dialog; see the section Section 2.3, “Dialogs and Docking” for help on manipulating it.
You can access it:
from an image menu: Windows → Dockable Dialogs → Colors;
from the Tab menu in any dockable dialog by clicking on and selecting Add Tab → Colors,
from the toolbox: click on the current Foreground or Background color.
In the Windows menu, there is a list of detached windows which exists only if at least one dialog remains open. In this case, you can raise the “Colors” dialog from the image-menu: Windows → Colors.

the Gimp 2.8 help is exactly the same but is now section 15.3.1.1
