Customization of behaviour of tools.
- Area selected when holding the Shift key
- When using the Select tool, a rectangle with predefined aspect ratio gets
selected if the Shift key is held down. By default, a square is selected.
However, here you can specify another rectangle as width : height. Several often used sizes
of computer & TV screens and photographs are predefined, plus you can choose any
custom aspect ratio.
TIP: Only integral numbers can be used for Other. To bypass this limitation, multiply your numbers by 10 or 100. For example, if you need a very specific ratio 1:1.234, specify 1000:1234 instead.
- Pipette picks colors in hexadecimal
- See Pick Color mode in Using Mouse in Viewer. When checked, the pipette tool shows colors as hexadecimal numbers (useful e.g. when editing HTML pages).
