bug: selection/deletion does not take into account shape of stroke, some strokes are impossible to select! #67

for example, trying to delete a small stroke near a large curving stroking almost always deletes the large stroke, even if the cursor is at a small size and exactly over the small stroke. Possibly similar behaviour with the selection tool?

Updating this to include selection. Basically it's really hard to select a specific stroke from a dense pile of strokes - most obviously because selection seems to be based on the (invisible) stroke centreline, so when you're trying to - for example - delete a flat stroke that's poking over the edge a little, its corner is sticking out but when you try to select the corner you end up deleting a completely different stroke. The other thing that I think would help a lot is some kind of preselection highlighting - I think quill has this for example. Often when selecting a stroke I often find I have to 'hunt around', holding the button in empty space, and very carefully sweeping the tool around until I hit the stroke I want, undoing every time I select the wrong stroke because of course deselecting 1 specific stroke is just as hard as selecting one. This would make quite a significant difference to usability on complex scenes imho
