    Question Selection Tool - fails copying due to "No Paint Present"...

    Hello All,

    My keyword search was pretty fruitless on my concern. If I missed the "obvious" post, please supply me a link below and I'll happily follow it.

    My attempts to copy a portion of my image is being hindered by a reoccurring error message. I use the Selection Tool to select the portion that I would like to copy, and then whenever I try copying it, I get an error message that states that there's "No Paint Present."

    What's truly confusing me is I can use the same tool to copy portions of the image that I made later, but not earlier, and, to be perfectly clear, the image is made up of ONE layer.

    Any detailed, step-by-step help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Oh boy, this is embarrassing.

    Even though I didn't create any layers in AR, it looks like I discovered that it does so automatically whenever one copies/pastes a portion of the image - am I correct on this? What confuses me though, is that I copied/pasted a basic head design 9 times, but only five new layers were created.

    Any clarity on this will be warmly welcomed!

    When you paste, the pasted content goes on to a new layer so that you can manipulate it without damaging the previous layers. I'm not sure why you only ended up with 5 layers, did you merge at any point?
