Move transparent section over transparant section without overwriting

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm not sure what I am doing wrong, basically I am trying to place a transparent section over another, yet the transparent selected box is overwriting the content....

How do I make it so the selection of transparent area doesn't cut the "Other Text"

Someone should be able to answer this in seconds, I'm sure. Hopefully this post will be useful for others in the future :)

Hello @Hyflex and Welcome to the forum :)

 

You could make the selection box smaller by holding Shift and pushing on the corner nubs.  Or, just use Edit - Cut - make a new layer - paste!

There isn't a "transparent selection" option like regular MS paint has?

I'm sorry but I'm not familiar with MS paint.  Someone else may log on and know what that means.

No, PDN does not have that.  You have to make the surrounding box smaller:

In order to do this in Paint.NET, do it this way:

 

1. Make your selection

2. Press Ctrl+X

3. Press Ctrl+Shift+V

 

You may now move your selection as you expect.
