    Circular area for Sampler

    Currently only option for large area sampler is a square shape.

    Suggest circular (being more symmetrical) as the default with option to choose square.

    Is this a visual preference, or do you have an actual need for a circular sample area?

    It's square to show you the exact pixels being sampled, so changing the cursor to a circle would require changing the sampled area. I don't see that this would make much practical difference (unless you can think of a specific example it would be useful for? I'm sure there's at least one or two cases, but all the stuff I can think of is very, very specific and not something most users would need).

    A circle has perfect sampling symmetry with no preferred directions. In certain situations it works better than a square.

    For example Imagine a strip of constant width ( less than sampling size) that snakes into a circle like a brush stroked "o". Taking samples all along the o would produce consistent results with a circle but inconsistent results using a square.
