When I use the rectangular selection, copy merged, paste and then move the new layer, the bounding box of the new layer weirdly includes the original selection. Why is this and what am I doing wrong?

Here is a video to demo the problem.


I am using Affinity Photo 1.9.3 on MacOS 11.4 (M1).

I have discovered that if I deselect the marquee before I paste then the bounding box is not distorted, so I have a workaround. However the behaviour I described is strange.

Please could one of the Affinity experts explain:

  • Is this a bug or intended behaviour?
  • If I want the selection to only select from one layer, is Copy Merged still correct? (I learned that Copy doesn't work, though I don't understand why.)
