Cannot add content once pasting image

Recommended Posts

I'm sure this isn't a bug and I'm an idiot, but I can't figure out how to make this work.


I have image A that's 2000x1000. I open it up, use the Rectangle Select to grab a small chunk 100x100 that I want. I think open up a new image, but make is size 300x300 because I'm going to draw some arrows and add some commentary to my new image. Trouble is, once I paste in my 100x100 I cannot add anything to the image except within the 100x100 image I've pasted. 


All the text and drawing and everything that I'm doing is recorded in the history window, I just can't SEE any of it in the image. 


What's really weird, if I add text and arrows before pasting in my 100x100 image, I can still see them after the paste. 


I know I'm doing something wrong, but I cannot figure out what.

Press esc, ctrl+d, or enter to deselect after you paste.
