Dear Painter Community,
I trying for weeks to find a solution for my issue. I'm would very grateful for help, because I cannot find any solution for this problem in the painter manual nor in this forum or somewhere else in the internet. :-(
If I'm selecting an area with a selection tool or the magic wand and then fill it with the bucket tool or delete the selected area it always leaves an edge of appr. 1 pixel. I always have to expand my selection manually via the selection tool settings that this is not happening but then ist not 100% accurat. It looks like that it only filles or deletes whats inside the selection but not the line of the selection as well.
This bothers me for a long time now. I'm a newby to painter and i'm using painter 2020 (bought version) but I had the same problem in painter 2021 (cloud version). In photoshop I was able to change the presets of the selection tool so that it expands the selection permanenty to the pixel I have set and I don't had to expand it every time like I have to do in painter right now.
One he following pics you can see what I mean. I created this form and then selected it with the magic wand. After I deleted the selection the edge of the selection is still there (second pic). Same thing happens when I use the lasso tool or the paint bucket. :-(
Can anybody help me with this problem?
Thank you for your help in advance!
I'll have to research it, but somehow faintly remember it has to do with setting for anti-alias or quality of screen re-draw (and there is a setting somewhere...seems like it was on toolbar for shapes; as I remember an old problem with shape edges looking like shadows a few years ago; made the setting and never had to fix it again...may take a few days...but maybe this will trigger someone else to remember the fix.
Dear Doug, thanks a lot for your answer. I have found your post about the anti-alias setting, but I cannot find this setting anywhere in Painter 2020. According to the Painter manual you can only change this in Paintshop Pro but not in Painter. :-(
