Inverting a Selection

May 14, 2012 5:36 PM

I have selected part of an image with the magic wand. How do I invert that selection, so I can paint on the excluded side?

    It's useful enough to deserve a single key shortcut, 'i' (Eyedropper) would make most sense,  (I hit B for brush and use the Alt key to access the eye dropper)  Hmmm... Unfortunately you can't use a single letter shortut for menu items, so it has to be an Action.  I used F2


    and there are a few more that could be reasigned IMO.


    H for the hand tool is a daft one because it's easier to use the Space bar.

    K for Slice (I never use it.)

    N for Notes (I don't use them, but I'm thinking that perhaps they would be useful sometimes)

    Some of the Function keys ?


    I am using a Logitech G110 gaming keyboard but I don't use its extra keys either.  What a waste.  I could have reasigned all those keys in the time it's taken to type this
