Simple Pointer
Hello,

I'm an absolute beginner, and cannot find a simple pointer in GIMP. By simple pointer I mean an arrow to select an object, similar to the pointer in Inkscape. What am I missing?

TIA,

pipoca

I agree that sometimes it would be nice to be able to move a pointer over the picture without the risk of altering something, but it's only "sometimes". Most of the time you have a "tool" active and so have a specific pointer icon.

Hummm... It'd be a nice feature to be added in a future release of GIMP. I vote for that.

Thanks anyway for your reply, Ofnuts.

The color picker only works on a continuous color, or something that has slight variation, otherwise it is quite hard to get it to select what you want.

RE: Simple Pointer
I hope to see the pointer tool in a future release of GIMP. Besides this lack, it's an amazing app - my congrats to the developers.
