Display selection size next to cursor when selecting

Recommended Posts

Right now, it is difficult to create pixel-perfect selections using marquee tool because the size of the selection isn't shown while selection in progress (the Info panel is reporting inaccurate size).

 

Having a little tooltip next to the cursor that reports the size of the current selection would be very, very helpful.

Hey diversario. Can you elaborate on this for me? It sounds like it could be a bug. Thanks! 

 

Update - Are you referring to the Transform panel reporting one size while dragging out the marquee and then it displaying something else when you release the mouse click? If so, this is normal. If you have your document set to pixels, the marquee is making a pixel selection and will round up to the nearest pixel.

I am referring to that, yes, but what I'm saying is it would be great if the current selection size were displayed floating next to the cursor - basically, the way photoshop has it.
