As we are getting ready to launch HDIP version 1.4, we would like to highlight some new features of this update. One of these new features is a new paint brush tool for drawing segments in the labeled segment editor. The labeled segment editor has plenty of tools to draw segments, to allow users flexibility in how segments are created. The new brush tool allows to draw shapes which were difficult to draw before. For example, one might want to follow a certain growth line of a biological or geological sample. The size of the brush can be modified between 1-100 pixels. Currently, the brush has a circular area, but this can be expanded in the future. Note that profiles of growth lines can be created within HDIP (see path extraction in the manual).
Here's an example of a segment that was drawn with the tool.
