I've been a pretty sophisticated Photoshop user for ages and was happy to see most of the familiar functions, tasks and key commands I've been familiar with using all these years are mirrored in Affinity Photo. I was, however, baffled by one of the most basic functions in any photo editing app, namely making a selection and then copying and pasting it to a new layer. No matter how I've tried numerous ways of accomplishing this after first selecting a layer, creating a selection, alternately using either Cmd+C or the Edit Menu to copy it and then: 1) Creating a new layer, making it the active layer and using Cmd+V 2) Simply pressing Cmd+V with the current layer selected 3) Holding down the Option key and dragging the selected area... The ONLY result that consistently shows up being affected is the actual selection itself—NOT the content! Am I crazy?...what am I missing here?
