Hello everyone!

This is another feature request.

 

I'd like to request a feature that lets users of Designer and Photo use tools in a straight way when holding shift.

For example, when I want to draw a straight line, holding down shift should draw a line between starting point and current cursor location.

This behaviour should be added to other tools as well.

If I want to use the "Smudge Brush Tool" or the "Inpainting Brush Tool" in a straight way, there is currently no way of doing so that I'm aware of.

 

Adding shift + alt for snapping to multiples of 45° between starting point and current cursor location could be very useful as well.

 

Also, I do know about left clicking using the "Paint Brush Tool", then holding shift and clicking at the end point to get a straight line. But this behaviour is limited to that tool and you don't get a live preview of the line or snapping to multiples of 90° or 45°.

 

The "Free hand Selection Tool" includes a similar feature to the one that I just requested. The difference is that the existing feature doesn't use the cursor location when left mouse clicking for its starting point, but rather the cursor location when starting to hold shift. This does make sense for that specific tool, but I think other tools would benefit from a set starting point at the time when mouse left is clicked. And that existing feature doesn't seem to have any snapping options either, which could be useful sometimes.

 

Best wishes,

Shu
