Stroke selection issues
Hi,

I just downloaded GIMP 2.8.10 and I'm having issues using the stroke selection tool. This is something I was able to do no problem in the older GIMP version. I typically select an area using the intelligent scissors or free select tool, click the selection to make the "wiggly" border appear, and then go Edit -> Stroke Selection and click "Stroke" in the dialog box. When I do this in the new GIMP, no stroke shows up. I've played around with the color (it's definitely on black) and the stroke size (even 6 pixels isn't showing up), with no luck. I've figured out a way to make it work by converting my selection to a path, then stroking the path, but these seem like unnecessary extra steps. Any ideas?

RE: Stroke selection issues
From info given it should work. I can not really comment because it works here.
So, the usual,
Which OS are you using?

If the new Gimp 2.8.10 was installed over an existing installation, rename your gimp profile ~/.gimp-2.8 as a backup. Start up Gimp, which will make a profile with default settings. Make a test selection, see if stroke works.

RE: Stroke selection issues
Have you checked which Brush is selected in the applicable paint tool (brush/pencil etc) for the stroke you are attempting?
