    If you click the S-Pen button and select Smart Select>Lasso and draw a dotted line around something to save or send you used to be able to select square or oval after Lasso to clean up the dotted line and make it perfectly shaped. Now it's just a jagged cut-out.

    I think the OP means that after using the lasso, you could change the "rough" selection to a rectangle or oval *after* the lasso selection had already been made, not before.

    Correct Glock,
    Now if we use the Lasso and hand draw a square, rectangular, or oval line around something we can't turn that hand drawn square into a perfect square....
    And the preset rectangle and oval options are terrible. If you don't start in just the right spot with the tip of the S-Pen you don't include what your trying to include inside that rectangle or oval....

    It's still very good for my uses. I see what you mean now, just a different adjustment, I wouldn't say a missing feature.

    It is still there. Use smart select > lasso tool > auto shape.

    Hi Mark.....Nope. when I use smart select>lasso tool>auto shape the auto shape does not define the hand drawn dotted line from Lasso into a perfect line or box, instead the auto shape function will literally define the actual item(s) exact border and save that. Give it a try by using lasso around an app on your home screen then select auto shape.

    I'm able to get squares and rectangles into auto shape with no problem. I did try to get circles and ovals into auto shape. But you're correct, it will just take shape of whatever you originally captured with the lasso tool.
