The doc for the "Clear" menu option states
"Erases the contents of the selection to the current background color (normally white)"
I use floats so this is meaningless, and the values ImageJ puts in the cleared area seem arbitrary. I would love to select a region and "clear" it to zero. Is there a built-in way to do this?
I realize it would not be hard to write a plug in to do such a thing! But, sometimes I am working with people, for whom installing a plug in is a lot to ask.
Any possibility the default behavior for this menu item, on a float image, could be to set the region to zero? I don't really see how the arbitrary values are likely to be of much use but could be wrong.
