Drag Selection in a Straight Line

Recommended Posts



I've used some editors that allow you to drag things in a straight line if you hold down the shift key, or control key. 


Is there any comparable function in paint.net?  So that, once I have activated a cut selection I can drag them in a true straight line either vertically or horizontally?

You want to make a selection then use the arrow keys (you can add the Ctrl key for larger movements). NB Cut erases the selection.
