Cutting/deleting selection cuts/deletes the whole layer

Recommended Posts

Hello !

I noticed a bug that (seemingly) only happens when, instead of opening a file from my drive, I copy an image from the web then create a new file and paste it as a layer :

when I want to isolate a part of that layer, I make a selection around that part, then either cut that selection to copy it to another layer or invert the selection and delete the rest. But here, in both cases, the whole layer gets cut or deleted, not taking my selection into account. I tried to do this through keyboard shortcuts and through the Edit menu, to the same result.

I also noticed that copying and pasting a selection also copies and pastes the whole layer.

It is Open image (Pixel layer), or Place image (Image layer)?

If Image layer (it is single object), you must rasterized this (convert image object to pixels).
