Lasso and Marquee

Choose between the Lasso and Marquee options to change the selection style of the tool.

Click and hold [Alt] to temporarily switch from the current mode to the other.

Apply to Line and Colour Art

The Apply to Line and Colour Art option uses the concept of Line Art and Colour Art layers. Use this option to apply an action such as selecting or resizing a drawing on both Line Art and Colour Art layers, as well as the Overlay and Underlay layers.

Use Mouse Gesture

When using the Lasso selection type, the Use Mouse Gesture option lets you automatically delete any extra sections of line in your artwork by simply dragging your mouse over it.

For this operation to work, you lines CANNOT be flattened.

Use Mouse Gesture Breaker Mode

When using the Lasso selection type, the Use Mouse Gesture Breaker Mode option lets you draw an invisible stroke on a pencil line to cut it in two individual objects. Once a pencil line is cut with this option, you will be able to select the two portions independently with either the Cutter tool, Pencil Editor tool or Select tool.

This option only works with pencil lines.

Tip Style

Use the Tip Style option to customize the tip of the pencil line you are cutting.

Flip Horizontal and Vertical

The Flip Horizontal and Flip Vertical operations flip the current selection horizontally or vertically.

From the top menu, select Drawing > Transform > Flip Horizontal and Flip Vertical.

The Rotate 90 Degrees CW and Rotate 90 Degrees CCW operations rotate the current selection 90 degrees clockwise or counter-clockwise.

Or press [Ctrl] + [7] and [Ctrl] + [9] (Windows/Linux) or [⌘] + [7] and [⌘] + [9] (Mac OS X).
