Cutter Tool Properties
When you select the Cutter tool, its properties and options appear in the Tool Properties view.
|Lasso||Sets the selection mode to Lasso. Click and hold Alt to temporarily switch between the Marquee and Lasso modes.|
|Marquee||Sets the selection mode to Marquee. Click and hold Alt to temporarily switch between the Marquee and Lasso modes.|
|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, resizing or erasing a drawing on both Line Art and Colour Art layers, as well as the Overlay and Underlay layers.
|Apply to Synced Drawing Layers||
Applies to the Camera view only. Works in conjunction with the Works on Single Drawing. Only selects lines from the current drawing and drawing layers synced to the current drawing.
Layers are synced when drawings need to be separated on different layers, but need to have the same timing. When you enable the Apply to Synced Drawing Layers option, only drawings on layers synced with other layers will be available for cutting. When you click on a synced layer in the Timeline view, the other layers that it is synced with will display the link icon.
In the example above, the torso layer is synced with the torso_pattern_1 and torso_pattern_2 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.
NOTE: 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.
NOTE: This option only works with pencil lines.
If you erase the end of a pencil line or erase a pencil line through the centre, new line tips or line ends are created. Use the Tip Style option to customize the shape of the new line tips that are created.
When drawing on a bitmap layer, lines are no longer clean vector shapes. For the edges to be smooth, a slight amount of antialiasing is used. When using the Cutter tool, you can cut a portion of your drawing with or without antialiasing. By default, the option is enabled. If you want to cut your drawing using a hard edge, you can select the Antialiasing Off option.
