Can't move selected pixels

Recommended Posts

When working on this image to correct poor spelling, I find that when I switch to "Move selected pixels" I can't move the selected pixels.

Here's the screenshot ->

Let me know if you need any more info., I'm using Paint.NET Beta 1.

You don't need to click and drag within the selection in order to move it. Just click and drag outside of your selection, away from your nubs.

Thanks for the reply, BoltBait, when I used the "Move selected pixels" tool in the past I've been able to move the pixels and manipulate the image. When I use it this time it just scales the pixels when I need them moved to a different position.

I didn't know if this was a bug so I went ahead and posted it.

Yeah, I've noticed when zoomed in the nubs seem to grab the mouse when you don't feel that you're near them.

I cannot get the move selected pixels to do anything but distort the selection. Even cut and paste only lets me grab nubs and distort the image.

I have figured out a workaround, though. Just copy (or cut) the selelction, paste into a new layer and move the entire layer. It's awkward and makes precise placement difficult. But...

Coriy, as I said in a previous post...

Try it this way and see if it works.

O.K. it works, if I double click.
