Making a selection and then using "move pixel" with ctrl+arrow_key creates an unwanted copy

Recommended Posts

What happens?
When making a selection, for example a rectangular one, and you want to move the selected pixels by a fixed amount using ctrl+arrow_key a copy of the original is left behind as if you have had copied it before.
What should happen?
The selected pixels should just be moved without them being copied / the original being left behind unmoved.
How to reproduce?
See "What happens?"

Does anyone actually rely on the “Ctrl makes a copy” behavior? This has always been weird, clumsy, and inconsistent in my mind. Can always just Ctrl C Ctrl V to do the same thing...

 

(I suppose I can just disable it and see if anyone notices...)

I find it useful now that I've become familiar with it. It is quirky because of it's similarity to this shortcut: 

 

Shift current tool 10 pixels

Hold Ctrl + Arrow keys     (may not work with all tools)

 

The trick is to use the arrow key first, then use Ctrl + arrow key combination to move by 10px (yes, I get it wrong often)

That's a great tip.  Saves Ctrl + I then Delete

All these years I never knew it did.  Disabling sounds good ... 

 

(To both posts ... I know.  Documentation.  Read ...)

Looks like I'm too late, but:

I'm new here, but I use it and I like it. As was stated above, tap the arrow key first then use control and it does not duplicate.

It works well for me.
