Unable to paste copied selection

Recommended Posts

Hello. I am new to Paint.net, and I really don't do anything with photos or art much, but I like the program. I am trying to edit a TGA image for a game, and I am having a problem. I am using the rectangular select to select a 11x8 block of the image and copy it. However, when I rectangular select another area and select paste, it doesn't paste, it just goes back and selects what I had originally copied. I tried a new layer as well, and it does the same thing. I can copy it to a new layer, but only to the same location as the previous layer. I am unable to move the selection either, only rotate or resize. I am not sure what I am doing wrong, I read the help, the FAQ, and did searches. This should be a simple action. Please help.
