Moving a small selection

Recommended Posts

When I select a small area, maybe 20x20 pixels and want to move it, how do it get the hand to switch to an arrow?

In other words, the selection is so small that I can only stretch or rotate the selection because the "middle" area isn't big enough for the selection pointer to turn into the movement arrow.

In Paint.NET, you don't have to have the mouse cursor inside of the selection to move it. You can left-click anywhere on the canvas to move the selection. By the same token, you can right-click anywhere on the canvas to begin rotating the selection.
