I can't cut or make selections into floats
Hi, I am using the rectangle tool to select stuff, but I can't cut it. The words are faded, and it doesn't like me click it. The same goes for the float command. What do I do? Undecided

First thought is that you have the 'Pixel Lock' (the littel Paint Brush icon on the Layers dialog) turned on for the layer that you are trying to Cut.
Can you Save and attach your .xcf file for us to have a look at the issue you are experiencing?

You're welcome,
Pixel lock is used to prevent accidental changes to the Pixels on that layer. Smile
