Hey there, I may seem like a complete newbie when it comes to this, because I am. I'm trying to use the selection brush tool but it doesn't seem to work. With the magnetize button on, It doesn't Snap to the Borders or edges of my work. Please, HELP!

I'm a little unclear about your questions. Assuming you are using Designer, the Selection brush only works on pixels when in the Pixel persona . Its snapping capabilities are to pixel color boundaries. The magnet button is not part of its operation. The magnet button turns on or off snapping for vector objects in the Draw persona.

 

Maybe take some time, and watch the online videos. I have been doing computer graphics for decades, and while I'm pretty familiar with general operations, every application will have lots of specific ways of doing many things.

I have the same problem. There is no bar that shows settings for the mode, add/subtract, snap, and refine tools. If this bar could be shown somehow, this would fix the snapping problem but im not sure if there is a view mode to show that setting.

Hi Raimondo,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

The Selection Brush Tool should snap to the edges if Snap to edges is ticked in the context toolbar. Assuming you have this correctly set can you post a screenshot of the app with the Layers panel visible (and the Selection Brush Tool selected) showing the result you are getting when you try select something in an image? When you refer to the edges i assume you are referring to the image edges correct?
