View Full Version : anyway to invert a stencil, on the fly?

Once you have your stencil positioned, would it be possible to invert it while it's still positioned in the canvas?

Like imagine defining a keyboard command to quickly flip the positive/negative of the stencil.

I think currently, this would require opening the source PNG in another program and inverting it there, then saving it.
Then adding the new stencil into the canvas and try to position it exactly.

If you right-click the stencil, a menu will appear-- somewhere in the middle of the menu the choice "invert stencil" appears. You can switch back and forth between original and inverted every time you right-click and choose "invert stencil". I think that's the fastest & easiest way.

And if you can't use right click for some reason, open the Stencils panel, go to Active and use the same menu from there ;)
