That is how it should be in Paint.NET.
Put your image on a new layer and all is well.
You don't have to cut just using copy is enough.

Asked many times, answered many times.

Use layers :) You will find a whole new world of amazing capabilities when you graduate from the confines of MSPaint's weird feature set.


Tip: Once you've selected an area you want to "lift", press Ctrl+X (Edit->Cut), then Ctrl+Shift+V (Edit->Paste into New Layer).
