Hand Tool
 

 

The hand tool is what you use to move layers around. Do this by holding down the left mouse button and dragging. Holding down the 1 or 2 buttons constrains the layer being moved to the horizontal and vertical directions respectively. Holding down Shift constrains it to the area within the background. If the layer is part of a layer-group, the entire group will be moved. Hold down Ctrl to group or ungroup layers. Right-clicking a layer with this tool brings up the layer menu, where you can select layer options. The hand tool has the following options:

Options

Normal

In this mode, the hand tool simply selects and moves the layer underneath it, whether the pixels in that layer are visible or not. This is the default.

 

Single

In this mode, the hand tool ignores groups, so that layers that are grouped can be moved independently.

 

Object

In this mode, the hand tool reacts to the visible pixels underneath it, ignoring the transparent parts of any overlying layers.

 

Selected

In this mode, the hand tool operates exclusively on the currently selected layer. This option may be used to move layers that are completely obscured by other layers.

 

Content

In this mode, the hand tool moves all layers except the background layer. This option may be used to adjust content position after resizing the background.

 

Pan Image

In this mode, the hand tool operates the scrollbars to pan the image.

 

 

 

These are the Tool-box, Palette and Layers windows, respectively. For help on how to use them, consult the User Interface article.
