How to move a selected area WITH content?

Recommended Posts

Assume I loaded a picture into Paint.NET.

Now I selected a part of it with rectangle selection tool.

How can I move this rectangle INCLUDING the content (!) inside the current picture?

This should somehow possible without explicte cut/copy and paste-

Paint-Shop Pro for example offers such a feature by default.

I was having the same problem and found this thread. I had no problem with big objects but could not move smaller ones no matter what tool I picked. To move the selected area you have to grap it in the middle to get the black arrow, otherwise you get the hand which stretches or rotates it instead. Increasing the magnification made it easier to grab the small ones in the middle. :D

You don't have to grab it in the middle, just grab anywhere on the canvas and move it.
