Creating a new selection after finishing one with the Free select tool is impossible without hitting Return, Esc or changing tools first
GIMP version: 2.10.12
Operating System: Windows 10
Package: mingw64/mingw-w64-x86_64-gimp 2.10.12-5
Description of the bug
The free select tool should function like the rectangle and elliptical select tools: the action of closing an area by clicking on the starting point should immediately free up the tool for further use. Instead, currently it requires pressing RETURN before a new selection can be made. This is inconsistent with how both the rectangular and elliptical selection tools work -- both of which allow resizing of a previous selection, as well as creating a new selection without having to press RETURN first.
If this is a setting in preferences, then the default setting should be set in favor of consistency.
Is the bug reproducible? Always
- With image open, select area using free select tool.
- Select a new area using free select tool without switching to another tool first or pressing RETURN.
Expected result: As with rectangle/ellipse select tools, the expected result is that a new area is selected (instead of/in addition to/subtracting from the existing selection)
Actual result: A second selection is not possible without pressing RETURN or switching to another tool first.
