    Stencil Precision

    Hello Rage team,
    Is there any way to specify the exact size to a stencil?
    I would like to overlay multiple stencils & need them to match perfectly.
    So far I haven't any way to do so & trying to scale/position them visually doesn't quite cut it.
    Also, is there any way to lock the stencil? The right click+drag to pan the image when zoomed in moves the stencil & disrupts the flow.
    Further more I'd also like to suggest that in future updates the ability to change the stencil color be included. The red becomes camouflaged when painting with red color.
    Regards,

    Never mind the first query, I found that using the transform tool lets me specify the scaling factor. Although I'd have preferred actual pixel size than a ratio, but it's a workaround.
    The problem now is to position the stencil precisely on the image. Which I can't do by dragging the handles since it resizes equally along the axis from the pin position.
    I hope there's some solution to this.
    Cheers,

    If you move the Stencil in Transform mode (as opposed to right-click dragging it) it will snap to guides so you could use those to define a precise edge for positioning after scale. Guides can also be used for scaling as when you drag the handles they will snap to the guide location.
