Copy/Paste is pasting the entire layer instead of just my selection

I’ve been using this program for a few years now and I’ve only started having this problem since I got a new PC and installed Aseprite again. I’m not sure if an update changed this functionality or what.

My issue is that every time I make a selection with the marquee or lasso tool and then hit ctrl+c to copy, when I go to paste it with ctrl+v, it pastes the entire layer that I copied from instead of just the part of the layer that I selected.

I have no idea why this is happening, but I’d greatly appreciate help understanding it and fixing it.


Do you maybe have a cell selected when you copy? I sometimes accidentally copy whole cells when I make a selection, then look around the cells and only then press ctrl+c. In those cases it will take the whole cell, even though there is still a selection displayed in the sprite.
