Designer: Magic Wand

Recommended Posts

I would like to suggest the inclusion of the magic wand tool inside of designer. I know that certain tools need to be partitioned within different programs to help sell because of the feature set but I’d like to argue that having a pixel persona inside of Designer truly warrants a magic wand for complex selections. 

I’m an illustrator by trade and one of the most common and simple functions I need to do is, draw a contour for a shape select it’s outter negative space and use that select as a mask for other layers beneath.

Currently I have to go multiple steps to achieve this simple task by using the bucket fill to fill a duplicated layer of the original contour illustration layer, find any “holes” in the filled version which can be incredibly tedious if there are any pixels that push the fill from reaching edge when the buckets tolerance doesn’t help. 

I think the idea of including the wand and some minor settings like expanding or contracting the selection would be hugely convenient for Designer users; not a huge fan of eating up system resources with having to open Photo just to create and adjust what is a simple selection need, or having to go through the effort of double saves and imports on the iPad.

Thanks for any consideration!
