5.4. Transformér kurver

Alle transformeringsværktøjerne (rotation, skalering, perspektiv osv.) kan indstilles til at virke på et lag, en markering eller en kurve. Vælg transformeringsværktøjet i værktøjskassen, og vælg så lag, markering eller kurve i indstillingen Transformering: i værktøjets dialog. Dermed har man en række stærke værktøjer til at ændre kurvers form uden at påvirke andre elementer i billedet.

By default a Transform tool, when it is set to affect paths, acts on only one path: the active path for the image, which is shown highlighted in the Paths dialog. You can make a transformation affect more than one path, and possibly other things as well, using the transform lock buttons in the Paths dialog. Not only paths, but also layers and channels, can be transform-locked. If you transform one element that is transform-locked, all others will be transformed in the same way. So, for example, if you want to scale a layer and a path by the same amount, click the transform-lock buttons so that chain symbols appear next to the layer in the Layers dialog, and the path in the Paths dialog; then use the Scale tool on either the layer or the path, and the other will automatically follow.
