Cut out selection doesn´t work ?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am trying to cut out a selected area from a photo. I had selected the right layer, I selected perfectly, what I wanted, with the brush (moving black´n white surrounding line active). I clicked on the mouse arrow tool. Following all videos and explanations I should just press CMD + X to cut out the selected area. Unfortunately it cuts out the complete photo - completely disregarding any selection.

 

Is that a bug or am I too stupid?

 

Please let me know.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi Dschorg,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Right-click the image layer in the Layers panel and select Rasterise to convert it to a Pixel layer type (check the label after the layer's name in the Layer's panel to identify the type of layer you are working with). It should then cut and paste just the selection. Note that you can only copy/cut pixel selections from Pixel layers. Image layers will be fully copied despite them being entirely inside the selection or not (Image layers are considered an object layer type - they can be modified "globally" - rotated, skewed, scaled etc - but can't be edited at a pixel level).

Hi Radovan Andrej Grezo,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
This is by design - there's nothing to fix. Image layers have its advantages/uses. To learn more about image versus pixel layers check this 
video tutorial. Regarding the ability to copy/paste selections directly from image layers this was logged as an improvement so it's possible it may be integrated in a future version. Thanks for your feedback.

Hi,  

I have a problem.  I can’t use the affinity photo perspective protection tool because I can’t move the nodes at the end of the grid. I using a tool Source mode. I have a same problem with a crop tool as well. I cleared a User Data Window all of customs settings, but my problems have not been fixed. These problems from latest Catalina 10.15.5 Mac Os update. 

 

Please help me.
