Free Select tool: Selection disappears because selection mode is stuck in Subtract mode
GIMP version: GIMP 2.10.4
Operating System: Xubuntu 18.04.1
Description of the bug
I am trying to use the Free Select Tool to select areas on a layer to fill or erase. I can draw the selection but as soon as I click the icon for the Eraser or Bucket Fill tools the selection disappears. If I use the Rectangle Select or Ellipse Select tools it works as it should. It's only when I use the Free Select Tool.
Is the bug reproducible? Always
- Select a layer
- Use the Free Select tool to define a closed area.
- Click the (Eraser / Bucket Fill) tool.
- The Selection disappears.
The selection should remain over the later, as it does when an area is defined using the (Rectangle Select / Ellipse Select) tools.
The selection doesn't stick and disappears so that you are working on the entire layer rather than a selection.
