Is it possible to change the modifier keys for the selection tools in GIMP? https://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-tools-selection.html

Default setting is

  • Shift = Add to the current selection
  • CTRL = Subtract from the current selection

I would prefer CTRL and Shift switched. I couldn't locate that feature in the keyboard shortcuts.

    Hi. Welcome to GDSE. Such a change is not available in the shortcut key options or preferences via GIMP's user interface. However, since GIMP is Open Source, you could technically modify the source code, but doing so is way beyond the scope of GDSE. – Billy Kerr Aug 14 at 17:08
