Where is the Feather Command?

Feather is still hidden in the Select menu under the Modify option. More useful is the new keyboard shortcut Shift-F6, which replaces the old shortcut Command-Option-D (PC: Ctrl-Alt-D). Mac users rejoice… you no longer have to give up the keystrokes to hide and show the dock to call up the Feather dialog from your keyboard. (Note: Just don’t forget to select something first!)

One comment on “Where is the Feather Command?

  1. For what it’s worth, I like to use Shift-Cmd-R/Shift-Ctrl-R to pull up Refine Edge. That one dialog enables selection feathering, smoothing, expansion/contraction, etc., all with an interactive preview.
