How do I move the pixels I've selected?

After I select something with the selection tool, how do I move those pixels? The only way I can figure out how to do this is to copy the selection, delete the selection, paste the selection and then dragging will move the selection. This is pretty clunky. I think the default should be to move the selected pixels, not the selection box.

    Press and hold cmd on OSX or ctrl on Windows and then drag it where you want. Took me a while to find that too ;)

    Yeah, I might try to figure out a good modifier key layout to allow just clicking and dragging to move pixels. Right now this was needed to get all the functions in there and working nicely (add/subtract/copy etc.).
  • Thanks Simon!  This is a game changer lol...
