Easy select/pickup question

Post by chrisheadrick » 28 Oct 2015, 23:07

In the past, when I have selected items, they have disappeared and popped up onto the tip of my pen to move around and be placed freely.

Recently, something changed--now, when I select an item, it duplicates it….I carry one around on my pen, but the old image still stays there. I like the image to disappear, as it used to!

Can someone help/guide me towards how I turn on/turn off the selection option of picking up or duplicating the selected item? I'd like to switch it back to the old way!

Thanks! C

what you're calling "selected" seems to be the cut brush tool,
this one has 2 modes : "Cut" mode = making the item disappear,
and "Copy" mode = keeping the original on the canvas,
if you want the first behavior, toggle the tool's mode to "Cut".

Or you can select the future cut brush with a right click, and it toggles for Cut mode automatically :)
