Hello,

May I ask how to add on top of an existing lasso selection, via keyboard shortcut? I press L and make a selection. After letting go of L and mouse click, the selection is made. Now how can I continue ADDING NEW lasso selections from other parts of the image, appending onto the current selection?

I tried pressing SHIFT like in Photoshop, but it just switches over to polygonal lasso selection. I see the buttons on top for NEW, ADD, SUBTRACT, INTERSECT. But I'd like to know if Affinity has shortcuts for it.

Hope it makes sense and thanks

I'm curious, for you who are on Windows, does Drag+RightMouse really work to add to a selection? When I try it, I get the proper cursor with a plus sign, but no additional selection is made. When I move the mouse I get no additional marquee drawn.

On the other hand, switching to Add mode, I get the same cursor, and when I drag using the left mouse button I get a new selection added to the prior one. (This happens in both 1.6 and 1.7 of Photo.)

The trick is to hold down the right-hand button and then release the left-hand mouse button first.

Yea it works. But it kinda feels bad to use. I primarily paint with a wacom... And my Rmb is the top most nub.. So I have to crimp my fingers upwards in a claw shape, while dragging. Lol. But that's just me, for mouse users I'd imagine it is  fine.
