SOLVED: Selection tool stopped working

Recommended Posts

Sorry, I wasn't in the Add mode. I don't know how to delete my post, so I'm just editing it. All is well now. Thanks.


I'm pretty new to Affinity and loving Photo! But I'm trying to select small parts of an image and pasting each to a new layer. It worked perfectly for three layers and now the selection tool does nothing although the history says, "Raster smart selection brush and drag" with each click. But it's like it's locked out. I tried on another image and it still isn't working.

Did I do something to turn it off? Tried it in an afphoto file and also a tif.

I'm using the trial version of Photo since yesterday. Will be purchasing in a few days. Does that have something to do with it?

Thanks for your help,
