Can't Select and Copy Part Of An Image


Recommended Posts

I've always been able to select part of an image and then hold the Ctrl key while dragging the area to another part of the image leaving the original in it's place , recently I noticed this doesn't work any more .  I know I can work around by duplicating the layer and then moving my selection but it sure was nice using the Ctrl key . 

I'm not sure if this happened after the last update or something else is wrong .

I'm using 4.2 (Final 4.200.7133.32960) .

 

Thanks !

This is coming back in 4.2.1 while using the mouse. The fix was intended to only affect the keyboard use (Ctrl + Arrow Key should move by 10 pixels, not copy and move by 10 pixels).

That makes sense ,  I always use the mouse when copying .  I also use the Ctrl + Arrow keys but have always hit the Arrow key once before holding down the Ctrl key so it didn't copy .  Thanks Rick for the info and for the new update  !
