Changed selection copies incorrectly

Recommended Posts

When you make a selection (using the marquee tool) on a layer and subsequently copy that selection, everything works fine.

See photos ‘Capture20’ and ‘Capture21’.

But, when you change the size of the selection, by using quick masque and the move tool, the chosen selection is copied incorrectly.

See photos ‘Capture22’, ‘Capture23’, ‘Capture24’, ‘Capture25’ and ‘Capture26’.

Hi Bert00000

 

I've been trying this but I'm not able to replicate your issue, the copy and paste works fine for me. Is it a particular image type or are there any other steps that may contribute towards this?

 

Thanks

Hello Chris_K

I have tried it with numerous photos and also with restarting my computer and only starting up Affinity. The result is every time as I posted. I today came across another artifact in the selection and copying department.
I straightened a photo, made a selection and copied it. All worked fine.

But when I tried to resize the selection (using Quick Mask and the Move Tool), the selected area (Move Tool) showed up rotated.

See attached photos.

Ahh ok It's the straightening and cropping of the image which is causing the issue here which was missed out on your first post. Technically after straightening you are making a copy of a rotated image so it is keeping that rotation for the new layer. You can see that without going to the quick mask by just selecting the move tool. The position it copies and pastes from after the quick mask is a bug I can replicate now so I shall get this logged

 

Cheers

Hello Chris_K,

 

Sorry for the confusion, but I am talking about two different things.

In post one I show a different problem then in post two. To clarify more.

 

Post one.

I have a multi layered project and I want to copy a selection of the top layer using the Marquee. This works fine.
But, when I change the size of the previously made selection, by using Quick Masque and the Move Tool, the chosen selection is copied incorrectly.

Post two.
I have a photo with a slanted horizon which I have corrected using the Straighten Tool (in the Crop menu).

I made a selection using the Marquee and copied it. All worked fine.

But when I tried to resize the selection (using Quick Mask and the Move Tool), the selected area (Move Tool) showed up rotated.

 

The two posts are not related except that they are both dealing with Selecting (Marquee) and Copying.
