How get the size of the selection ?
Anywhere I found a statistics/info window where this data presented ?
Thanks for it:
To know the information while drawing, use the status bar at the bottom
of the window. If you do not have it, turn in on in the preferences
(Image Window Appearance category).
You can also use the "Tool Options" area (it should be just under the
toolbox, and called "Rect Select" when you use the rectangular selection
tool). There is a "Rectangle controls" category. Open it, it will give
you the information (same for ellipse selection).
