Thread: Separate fill for arrow tool and rectangle tool

  1. #1

    Default Separate fill for arrow tool and rectangle tool

    I'm working with a lot of screenshots as QA and one thing is extremely annoying (for me) with F12 tools / paint mode.

    When I want to make a rectangle selection I have to uncheck fill and if I have to use arrow tool for making an arrow on some elements, I have to check it again because arrow unfilled is not looking good.

    Everyday I'm loosing a lot of time manually changing those two tools and fill checkbox. Many times I have to undo changes because the tool that I needed was in the wrong "mode".

    Is there any chance to separate fill into those two tools? For example, arrow will be filled in default and when I change tool to rectangle tool, fill will be automatically unchecked?
    I'll loved that one simple feature.

    By the way, I'm with IrfanView since I remember (I'm 27).

    Best regards!

    The IrfanPaint plugin developer has moved on to other projects. He has released the source code if others want to improve it. I don't see it happening though. Nothing has changed since he stopped development in about 2010, except that Irfan Skiljan fixed some crashes.

    I recommend using a more powerful tool such as FastStone Capture for annotating screenshots. Version 5.3 was the last freeware version. It has most of the tools that you would need.
