So I've always had this issue but it seems to be consistently getting in my way today. Is there some kind of setting thats turned off or on to make this happen? You can seen the green area I selected precisely and now every selection after that seems to be guessing what I want to be selected. I want it to only select exactly what I tell it to select. What can I do to make that happen?
Here's the screenshot to show what's happening
Play with the Tolerance setting in Property Bar to see if it makes any difference.Increase to 50 for example.
Seems to make no difference. I was able to complete the selection. But It would only select the areas I selected if I zoomed in at a certain distance. Some places, especially the higher detailed places, I had to zoom in further for it to select shape I was making.
Looking at it a little more the tolerance is effecting it. When I make a selection it seems to have an aversion to selecting any pixels that are white or maybe what it thinks is the background? If I change the tolerance to 0 it will select white but it still doesn't select the shape I made.
I got I got time to test this tool in 2022. It seems to work as expected for me, I however find the magic wand and magnetic masking tools faster and easier.
