Enter Key in Mac OSX
Hello Guys,
I am trying to use the Foreground select tool, and while I can select the section I want. WHen it instructs me to press the enter key, I do and everything de-selects.

I cannot copy the selection

I'm using a MacBook Pro 10.5, and I have no idea what I am doing wrong.

RE: Enter Key in Mac OSX
What is likely happening is that you only disabled the display of the selection, so it is not displayed when you are not working on it, and the final [enter] tells Gimp that you are done with it.

To see the selection, use View/Show selection or just use Ctrl-T to toggle the selection visibility.

With some luck the selection you were working on has been saved behind your back when you saved the image, so reopen the image and hit Ctrl-T. Miracles happen, too.
