How can I get SelPen?
« on: December 19, 2011, 12:15:24 AM »
Just paid for SAI, and I'm trying everything out. The tool that says "SelPen" isn't sel pen, but just the regular selection tool. When I trace a shape, it selects the outline rather than the shape; see http://imageshack.us/f/52/selpen.jpg/ for an example.

So, is this normal? And if it's not, how do I fix it?

Strange behaviour. Try 'rebuilding' the Select Pen (right click on an empty tool area, choose 'SelBrush') and see if this new brush has the same problem

Yeah that is weird! Just to check the basics: you are painting with SelPen using a thick brush size, so that you paint on top of (paint over) the area you wish to select? That's how it is supposed to work, in contrast to the Lasso tool's 'draw around' behaviour.
