fuzzy tool
Hi,

Another little problem!

The fuzzy select tool seems to have a mind of it's own ...... it won't select what I ask it to. I have a drawing open (black and white) yet when I try to select an area with FST it (in general) selects the whole page, and not the little section I'm try to click on.

Any suggestions, or do I have to change something in the options, etc?

Thanks in advance.

p.s. It did work once or twice straight away, and I was able to select various areas etc no problem.

Wrong layer selected or editing the layer mask?

RE: fuzzy tool
Explain a little more if possible. Normally I checked that I wasn't making a mistake on a different layer, but it seemed ok, however could explain the layer mask as that could be something to do with it.

As I mentioned before, it's worked sometimes and more recently doesn't seem to recognize anything, except the whole picture!!??

RE: fuzzy tool
If your layer has a layer mask (see Layers dialog) and it is selected (instead the plain layer) and it is empty, 1) the fuzzy tool, like most tools, will operate on it, and 2) since everything is the same color, everything gets selected.

RE: fuzzy tool
OK, that sounds most likely, I'm going to check that later ...... it's probably the answer.

Anyhow, there's so much to work on in GIMP you learn something all the time, and much of the most interesting stuff is best understood/discovered by trial and error.
