3.6.  Cut

The Cut command deletes the contents of the image's selections, and saves them in a clipboard so that they can later be pasted using the “Paste”, “Paste Into”, or “Paste As New” commands. If there is no selection, the entire current layer is cut. The areas whose contents are cut are left transparent, if the layer has an alpha channel, or filled with the layer's background color, otherwise.

[Note] Note

The Cut command only works on the current active layer. Any layers above or below the active layer are ignored.

3.6.1.  Activate the Command

  • You can access this command from the image menubar through EditCut,

  • or by using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+X.
