I have a picture that I would like to create a circular selection in. I select the eliptical selection tool, drag to create my circle, and release. I get marching ants around my selection.
So far so good. Now, lets say that I didn't quite get my selection right. The size of my circle is right (so I don't want to draw it again) but my selection area is wrong. I want to reposition the selection circle (not move the area underneath it).
This is what "Grokking the Gimp" had to say:
Occasionally it is useful to be able to move a selection after it has been made. That is, it is useful moving the selection itself, not the selection contents. This can be done by Alt-clicking and dragging the selection boundary.
However, when I ALT+click and try to move the selection, my whole window moves instead of the selection. This is really driving me crazy.
I am using release 1.3.20.
