Select tools: moving, relocating, erasing of the selected area

Recommended Posts

Hi jenda,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Using the Marquee Tools you can move a selection (not its contents), placing the cursor inside the selected area and dragging it. To add to a selection press and hold ⌃(ctrl) and draw/create a new selection. To remove from an existing selection press and hold ⌥ (option/alt) and draw/create the selection part you want removed.


If you want to move/relocate a selection and its contents change to the Move Tool, place the cursor inside the selection and drag it.
