Chapter 13. WORKING WITH PIXELS > Saving and Restoring Selections

Saving and Restoring Selections

Selections are fragile little creatures. If you deselect the selection, or exit the bitmap mode, you lose the marching ants that you worked so hard to shape just so. Fortunately, you can save the shape of the selection. Once you have saved a selection, you can reapply it at any time.

To save a selection shape:

  • With the area selected 31, choose Modify > Marquee > Save Selection. The shape of the selection is stored with the document.

    Figure 31. The shape of a selection can be stored with a document.


    Tip

    Only one selection is saved at a time. If you save another selection you delete the previously saved selection.
