For some reason photoshop has started deleting layers instead of the selection?
I've tried doing a search but its for people that want to delete layers not the selection -.-
I don't believe i've changed any settings.
Can anyone shed any light on this?
First make certain that you have made a selection. You can check for sure by choosing Select menu. If Deselect is grayed out, there is no selection.
When you hit the Delete key and a selection is action, the selected pixels on the layer (other than a Background layer) will be deleted. If no pixels are selected when you hit the Delete key, the active layer will be deleted.
Let me know if this solves the issue.
Apologies, I have being a little silly... I wasn't rasterizing the layer before selecting and editing.
Thankyou for the reply
