HI , I am an amateur gimp users, self taught through you tube, about five years
in now. Something has changed and no matter how many times i scrape gimp off my
drive and reinstall (registry entries too), the issue remains the same.
I can find no settings or options to affect this issue, so it must be something
stupid I have changed or don't understand about the program.
let's say as an example i paste a picture into my gimp frame and from within
that picture I want to cut something out, using my lasso tool by clicking
multiple points around the object closely and then CTRL X to cut it out.
This tool has always worked 100 percent, but now when I attempt to laydown
selection dots around my object, before i am finished laying down the dots, the
dots behind me dissapear, or the dots close the loop in some intersected way
that I didn't choose because i didn't get to finish going around my object.
I am litterally losing my mind over this issue. I have hit hte tool reset
button, i have used all th different tool selection settings, I can't get it to
let me finish selecting the object i want to cut out, without it finishing it or
me too early and cutting across my object.
I have attached a picture showing how the lasso tool closed the loop on me while
I was still trying to go around the object with selection dots.
Has anyone experienced this, can someone help me.
Gimp is being told by your OS that you double-clicked... So it's really
a matter that for that particular use, you may end up clicking too many
times or too fast.
Things to check:
1) if you have an old mouse (or even a recent Logitech MX that wear off
fast), the left click contact may be worn out and generating spurious
clicks (when my two previous mice started dying on me, I first noticed
in Gimp... because other apps a less sensitive to double clicks). Try
2) if its a wireless mouse, check the batteries (or try with new batteries)
3) your OS has a mouse setting somewhere that determines how close two
mouse clicks should be to be interpreted as a mouse a click. Narrowing
that interval could help.
