yes, the [C] button is a "Copy from Selection" command,Svengali wrote:Paul,
I think you have to freehand select what you want to copy before clicking the C icon.
so you need to draw a selection first, with any selection tool,
but you can change it to a simple "Cut Brush" if it matches better in your workflow.
I often use this [Selection to Brush] command (instead of the classic Cut-Brush)
when the outlining of the area I want to select is too convoluted to be drawn in a single stroke,
sometimes, with complex shape (with holes f.i.), it's easier to adjust/refine the cutting boundaries
by using several selection strokes alternatively in [Add] and [Sub] mode.
another difference (limitation) with [Cut Brush] is that the [Selection to Brush] copy only the layer's content,
where [Cut Brush] has 2 options available "Layer" and "Display",
unfortunately, we still have no "Display" option with the [Selection to Brush] cutting tool,
also missing to me, the possibility to toggle the selection Add/Sub mode via a shortkey,
or have I missed something new regarding these 2 issues ?

or more exactly, a simple Copy and (multi)Paste without breaking Instance(s) .
