Copy and paste not working anymore.

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 

I can't do the most basic of functions any more and I can't figure out why. All I'm doing is making a marquee selection on a pixel layer (and it is 100% the correct layer) and trying to copy/paste the selection to a new layer. 

This no longer works. The entire layer gets cut/pasted and not the selected portion. I also can't invert the selection and delete the remaining parts of the layer, the entire layer gets deleted. It's like the program is completely ignoring the marquee selection. Anyone know of a fix?

Sounds like you have an (Image) layer that you need to rasterize so it becomes a (Pixel) later.
