    Cannot Define New Pattern from Transformed Selection

    silverbluemoon Level 1

      I am having some trouble making a new pattern from a selection in Photoshop CS6. If I simply use the rectangular selection tool over an area that I would like to make a new pattern from, I can go to Edit > Define Pattern to make a new pattern from my selection. However, if I transform the selection or create a selection using ctrl-click on a layer, the option Edit > Define Pattern is unavailable. I haven't been able to find anything online that explains why this would happen, so I've decided to try my luck here. Any insight will be appreciated! Thank you!
