Short description of error
As subject says. Circular selection (both, Tweak tool and C-brush) grabs segments instead points. Edit mode, vertex mode.


Event Timeline

This is by design and have not changed since a lot of versions. When you pass the circle over, you are selecting the stroke, not only the point. We could do in the way you explain, but it would a change of how is working for years. I don't mean your proposal will be worse or better, just a different approach to the problem.

@Matias Mendiola (mendio) @Daniel Martinez Lara (pepeland) What do you think?

That means, it worked inconsistent, for years.
If selecting segments this way is so important, there can be option for all selections, or segment-mode.
I am not against various methods, I am for consistency.

Okay, it works fine now.
And If I need to grab old way (+1 segment), I just press Ctrl++
