How to move a Selected Rectangle?
Once i have 'selected by rectangle' and copied its innards
how then can i move rect-image to where i want to place it?
I am used to just clicking the 'pointer tool / move tool',
and move it.

RE: How to move a Selected Rectangle?
Ah, there it is,
I finally found the 'move tool'. That solves some of my query.

Once i have 'selected by rectangle':
What should i use to actually copy its innards Copy/CopyVisible?
Or should i use a CROP feature.
What is the diff in Output(Layers), using Crop or 'Select Rect'?
As it applies to Layer type?

'Floating selection' I not sure how this came to life.
But often it gets locked up and i can't activate the other layers by clicking on them.
I have to then use the UpDown arrows. (yes, layer is unLocked)
I would like to, but cant, delete any other layers. (The dropDown menu wont show)

Oh, the other thing is that I can't Fiip Layer (vert or horz).
It allows me to request a Flip, but doesnt actually do it.

Anyways, these are the piddly things that hang me up.
Thanks for your help...vmars
