Pixel is not a square

Hi again,

I just had some user feedback on Napari annotation tool today. Everyone found it super intuitive and easy to use for annotating images/using points layer to create/delete/move dots etc. However quite many of them had one request, which is to make the annotation shape a circle instead of a square as annotating Dapi like round cells with a square is a bit tedious. I could not figure out an easy way to change the shape of the annotation tool, so I thought maybe someone here can help me in changing the shape of the drawing tool?

Thanks for the feedback @kapoorlab! We love it!

I guess you mean you are talking about the brush when painting in a labels layer?

I’ve added your request to our feature request list for the layer here: https://github.com/napari/napari/issues/1142

Improving label painting is a high priority for us!

Yeah it is the brush tool, also maybe a textbox with the slider to enter bigger radius than that can be offered by just a slider?

It is just that these little fine details make things so much convenient. In the end it would be just one evening of you doing just this but your one evening of effort would have such a great impact for the PhD students/analysts who can then go on to answering the questions in biology they originally wanted to focus on. Makes things less exhausting for them.

Now I am just literally quoting a feedback letter I got yesterday :).

Yes for sure, we had noted something like that here https://github.com/napari/napari/issues/879 and have a bit of in progress work, but need to revisit this.
