When having a selection (using the ‘M’ move tool), if that selection was moved at all during the selection, and the eyedropper tool (Alt) is used, the whole selection moves. If the ‘M’ selection hasn’t been moved, it functions properly.
hi, JDZombi. yes, this is a bit confusing behaviour.
i was looking into it and i didn’t find the way how to avoid it.
but here’s what you can do: after you move the selection, you enter some sort of transform mode. to prevent moving selection by alt+mouse click, you have to confirm the transformation here (or by hitting enter):
also, you can hit ctrl+t (or other shortcut assigned to ‘edit → transform’). however, this action will crop the selection area to the cel image boundaries. so that might not be what you want.
this is a bug, its not only present in moving but tranforsming and rotating, i opened a thread about it but no one noticed plese like the thread and like it so we can get more leverage gor the bug to be fixed
