Hi, This mail is triggered by a user request in a forum (I saw a couple of similar ones before). I tried reproducing his issue with current development version and also got stuck, hoping now that you will point me to a good source of knowledge that we both might have missed.
Say, I need to select a region and move it. Documentation clearly states: "Click-and-drag then allows you to move the selection and its contents, while the initial position remains empty." That bit of docs probably belongs to 2.2, but definitely not to 2.4: Clicking a selection drops handles, but subsequent dragging moves selection, not its contents. Now, this would be okay since I'm in selection tool mode, but even if I switch to Move tool, I still can't move selection with its contents - whether I just drag it, or use Ctrl/Shift/Alt (I doublechecked that Move tool is in Layer mode by default), only selection border is moved. Then I'm down to copy/paste thing. This is, however, a roundabout, not a straightforward solution, because there seems to be no way to paste selection in place or under cursor -- pasted bit is always placed to the center of an image. While paste in place and under cursor definitely belong to 2.6, I wonder if the move selection with its contents feature got lost due to all the changes to rectangular tools. The user and me checked: - docs - UserFaq in wiki - google - spec for new rectangle tools Any hints much appreciated.
