  • I've had a few similar problems with the newer versions of Photoshop. I'm using CPU rendering. It all works like it's supposed to but fragments of earlier selections seem to get stuck on the screen until I zoom in or out. Sometimes a new selection also isn't visible before changing view. Is it a visual glitch like that or does it also affect functionality? – Wolff Sep 28 '20 at 20:21
  • functionality.. .. trying to move the box just creates another box or an extension to first box... impossible to move the one i want – alicia tapp Sep 28 '20 at 20:28

To move or change a selection, choose: Select->Transform Selection.

To move or transform the selected pixels:

  1. Make sure you have a raster layer selected in the layer panel
  2. With the move tool, click on the selection and you'll be given the standard transform handles
  3. Make whatever transformations you'd like
  • perfect... Just created box and moved it : ) – alicia tapp Sep 28 '20 at 20:31
