Re: PSE Selection problem

I've selected an area in a layered graphic I'm preparing. I've done it 1000's of times using Photoshop, not PSE. I'm a new PSE user.

I've made the selection, inverted it, have the correct layer selected, and want to "Cut" the selection. However,"Cut" is grayed out, no matter what tool icon I click on. I have no idea what I may be doing wrong.

Suggestions please. Thank you!

I'm away from my machine just now, but if I only want to keep the original selection on the active layer, I invert and then hit the Delete key. I have never tried to Cut in such a situation. Hope it helps.
