fuzzy select bounding box
After doing a fuzzy select, how can I see the position of a selection box that would crop the fuzzy selection? I've found various ways to crop the fuzzy select and then determine the size, but I'd like to see the position coordinates like I would with the rectangle select tool.

I've found that I can go to Layer->Crop to selection and see a yellow box that I can zoom in on and find the upper-left corner, but this is tedious. I was wondering if there was a faster way.

RE: fuzzy select bounding box
Thanks for the reply. I was hoping to see the position displayed somewhere since this will be done many times. However, the guides made it much easier to find the position.

In my case, since the selected region is in its own layer, I discovered a simpler way. I can use the rectangle select tool and auto shrink the selection. The position of the bounding box is displayed.

Thanks again.
