Grauniad, I believe I'm addressing to intelligent people here, the mostly used screen resolution doesn't mean that it's also the best, either fits the current media formats or the computer monitors. If you see the Browser statistics, you'll see IE is mostly used, do you use it? I guess not. It's just what most
people do. If you think that the members of this forum can be compared to the average mass, you
are mistaken. Anyway, I don't think that an expandable list would be such a challenge to be added. I believe that everyone that uses the editor will take advantage of it.
No complexity hey? And just how many years have Photoshop being in development and how many programmers work on it?
Since 1987 and lots
of programmers. But I doubt if they were focusing on the selection tool. Also that's totally irrelevant with the complexity of using that hypothetical tool in comparison with the existing.
