Free hand tool. Polygonal as default?


Recommended Posts

I use free hand tool extensively in set of photos.

If I select in the first on to use polygonal mode and "new boundary" mode, every time I swap from a photo to another I Have to re-select them they fall back to default "free hand" mode.

there is no way to make free han tool in polygonal mode as default?

 

OR, at least, make a shortcut to directly select that mode?

You can make a shortcut in the Preferences>Keyboard Shortcuts>Photo>Tools. Scroll down to find Polygon Tool.

Ok, I guess me not using Designer, I didn't pick up on the polygonal "mode" and boundary "mode", which I'm guessing is only in Designer. Other than those, OP does not specify what program is being used. IMHO, forum needs to have a requirement or template when submitting questions, where some simple info and necessary info is completed.

No, AFAIK not for the content toolbar

sorry, my fault. I'm talking about affinity photo.
I'm not talking about the polygon tool, BUT the polygonal mode on free hand tool. see pic.

Ok, there's not anyway to create a shortcut for that specific selection tool.
