The Move Tool  

Previous | Next | Table of Contents

The Move Tool is quite handy indeed. [IMAGE] This tool allows you to take any selection and move it to a different location on the canvas. It is also very easy to use. Simply click and hold on the selection and then drag the mouse to move the selection.

Note that if there is nothing underneath the selection, the area left behind will be filled with the background color. Note also that if you click the pixel-doubling checkbox in the options palette, you will speed up the refresh rate such that the move operation will be real time.

You can also move a selection pixel by pixel by using the arrow keys. this gives more precise movement but is less convenient for large moves. Note also that you can get the exact screen positions by looking at the info palette.
