    I was wondering if there's a way of changing between the different types of lassos while in the middle of tracing something without losing what you've traced. Thx :)

    I don't think so.. I looked this up a while back and couldn't find anything on it :hs: They all have the same short cut IIRC so that doesn't help much

    you could use shift and add to your current selection....

    that might work for you, although I'm not really understanding what you're asking.

    Yeah, you can also hit (I think) ctrl to subtract to your selection.. But you have to have a full selection before doing that..

    You can switch between the normal and polygon lasso by holding down the alt/option key while making your selection. If that's what you were asking.

    i never use the lasso. i find pen tool (p) and quick selection tool (w) a lot more useful and i get more control out of it.
