Bug Description

Jonathan Pobst's Pinta 1.6-prerelease for Windows from: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1481774/pinta-dev-

Windows 7:

Regression problem since my last compilation from Andrew's GSoC-2014 from about august 2014.
a) Open Pinta and create new image smaller enough that you can see canvas and empty background
b) Rectangle select
c) Click outside of the canvas. Hold mouse pressed and move mouse to the canvas. What happens? Nothing. In my version I could see object drawn from the start of the cavnas.
It looks like this is also broken for Line/Curve. It was a nice feature I could really draw line outside from canvas and to the canvas, so line really appeared exactly at the edge of the canvas, now this is way more difficult to do. Now I have to really exactly point my mouse to start of canvas and start drawing. If you look into Rectangle Select it works excellent - you can start selecting arrea of canvas ouside of the canvas. Test to see what I mean.

Changed in pinta:
importance: Undecided → Medium
milestone: none → 1.6
status: New → Confirmed
tags: added: line-tool

It looks like pressing the Ctrl key allows this to work, but the behaviour is a bit different than how the old shape tools used to work - now the line immediately starts drawing, instead of waiting for the mouse to reach the canvas.

I tested and I see Ctrl key somehow does the trick - yes, on click outside of canvas it makes immediate action on canvas.
We are having little bit an inconsistency with Rectangle and Rectangle Select.

I don't know how hard is this to fix, but I don't see it as a major problem, so we may rethink and set milestone to 1.7.

Changed in pinta:
milestone: 1.6 → 1.7
