PSP 2018 Crop Tool : view gets re centered when selected?

Postby chris_b » Tue May 15, 2018 10:17 pm

also, zooming with the mouse-wheel when using the crop tool centers the view in the middle of the image.. even if it places the bounds of the crop tool entirely off-screen. Why?

Eg. suppose you want to precisely crop a single square from a chessboard pattern: previously you could zoom into a corner of the crop rectangle with the mouse wheel, adjust the it, zoom out then into the opposite corner of the crop rectangle.

It was really quick and simple with previous versions - but now it's infuriating. When you zoom in the view is centered back in the middle of the image (not even the middle of the crop rectangle!) so you have to hunt around with the scroll bars (because, unlike with all the other tools,holding space to pan around doesn't work?).

Is there a setting or registry key to have the zooming and panning work with the crop tool like in previous versions?

there appears to be many issues with the crop tool in PSP 2018....do a search of the boards

Specifically here:

We are hoping that in the next update they will either revert it to what it was in PSP X9 or at least add a checkbox so that we can choose which method of cropping we want.

Yeah, I saw the the other threads but didn't find anything about this specific issue. To be honest I was as much venting my frustration* as hoping for a solution - I've got a full Adobe CC subscription but I still prefer PSP to Photoshop for a lot of tasks because I've been using it since maybe before some of the current coders working on it were even born.

Ironically, it was the supposed improvements to the crop tool that motivated me to upgrade.. in X9 the crop tool drives my computer's fans wild - seems like there's some issue where it uses way more CPU resources than it should. But, even with the new behaviour, I think it's a bug that holding spacebar to pan doesn't work.


*and while I'm at it: when you're zoomed way in, the fact that the cropping rectangle is drawn through the middle of pixels rather than on the boundary between pixels is super-irritating. I guess the use case of close-up pixel-perfect cropping wasn't something that was really considered by whoever implemented it.
