Shift Edge on a zoomed section of a photo with a selection doesn't appear to do anything, regardless of pixel setting,  or %shift. Under the old Refine Edge tool, shift edge used to shift the selection edge + or -, which was very useful.

Not convinced Select and Mask is ready for prime time yet - a number of things I used to be able to do with Refine Edge don't seem possible with Select and Mask. Only way I can do this now is by closing Select and Mask and manually adjusting the selection by laboriously adding extra pixels all around the selection edge.

Can we have Refine Edge back as an add-in or something, until Select and Mask works properly  please?
