Layers question

Layers question

In this post (, the instructor can move the content of a layer around by clicking the layer, the object on that layer is automatically selected and he can do whatever he wants to with the object: move it, change the size etc.

When I select a layer the object is NOT selected automatically; it is even impossible to select it in whatever way. To move the object around I have to move the whole layer. Furthermore if I want to resize an object, I have to change the scale of the layer, since I cannot select the object itself.

Am I doing something wrong or is this the way things are done in GIMP (2.8.22)

Looking forward to any comments and/or tips.

Kindest regards, Leo.

RE: Layers question
Hi Leo
This forum was dead for a long time. It recently came back to life, but there is nobody left here to answer questions.

Many of the folk that used to be on this forum have moved to
I recommend that you ask your questions there.
