when you try to fill something a pixel shows up under the cursor and makes it pretty difficult to see what’s underneath it

I think you have to select it first with the dotted box

It took me a little bit to figure it out, but basically you can select the area you want to move copy it then drag it to the area you want it then paste it. I know it’s not a great explanation, but i’ll go more in-depth if you need me to.

I love how @grazer pays attention to our comments and actually listens to us. I appreciate this update and it will really make things easier for us thank you. Merry Christmas

The wait for this update was definitely worth it

Also - I just realized that the β€œPer-tool cursors” didn’t actually get deployed :crying_cat_face:

I actually did upload it just now though, so the tools really do have their correct cursors now.
