Invert (indicator to visually show if inverted or not)

Recommended Posts

I appreciate the nice little touches added to 1.6.9

 

Example: The new lit up snap to edges, the new lit up icons when copying pasting etc.. Way more visual indications which is great, helps the flow and gives us awareness.

 

Did serif add any kind of indicator to show when we are inverted or not?

You can normally tell when you are inverted because all the blood goes to your head ;)

I take it you mean the Invert Adjustment Layer?  If you've used the invert adjustment layer then it does appear as a seperate layer.

If you mean the Invert Selection option, then you could always check the History studio as it would show up in there.

Yes, invert selection option. 

 Ah, so history studio is location. I rarely use history studio. 

I mostly just tap back button or undo. So outside of that, whenever I have a smart selection - active (the marching ants)  it transcends layers, can affect any layer that’s chosen. Which I use for duplication of a specific area, or erasing within or outside of a specific area.   

So outside of history studio, there is no way, at a glance, to notice (the marching ants are inverted)

That is true, i wonder if that would be possible to have an overlay appear when a selection is inverted?  Even if it's just a darkening of the selected area that would help.  I don't know whats possible and whats not from a programing point of view but that would make for a good feature request
