Someone else already pointed you to the relevant section of the manual
that explains how to combine selections. However I'm not sure if I
understood your question correctly since you are not using the GIMP
terminolgy. Which tool are you actually talking about? Please have a
look at the tool name as shown in the tool options dialog. I assume
you are referring to the "Intelligent Scissors" tool?!

It is not our goal to make the GIMP a 100% clone of Photoshop.
Actually most of the GIMP developers don't ever use Photoshop.
