selection overlap

Recommended Posts

Love the program!  I use this for creating field drawings for my job.  I used to use simple old windows paintbrush, but doesn't even compare to the possibilities with paint.net. 


The question I have is in regards to being able to overlay a selection on the same layer without covering up what is already there.   I use the layer function to distinguish different aspects, but when I try to modify a layer it is very difficult to move an object (selected area) on that layer without covering parts of that layer.  In the old paintbrush you could select a 'transparent' feature which would allow you to move a selected area on the page without it covering up the existing drawing.  Is there a way to do this with paint.net or a possible fix that can be added to future updates?
