    Is there a way to get rid of the selection tool lines or the marquee
    tool lines without saving the project? That's what I have been doing
    when I'm finished working in the selected area. Thanks

    Not sure I am reading this right. Select/deselect?

    or just click once (without moving the mouse) anywhere outside the existing
    marquee with one of the selector tools.

    That only works if a selection tool is selected :)

    Well IF it weren't 'selected', then you couldn't "click outside the existing
    marquee with one" ... could you?

    "Something" to think about ... eh?

    If you wish to Deselect an active Selection, the Ctrl-D will Deselect it,
    while (stated elsewhere) Ctrl-H will "hide" it, though it is still active.
    Warning, with Selection hidden, you can only effect changes within that
    Selection and it is very easy to forget that there is a hidden active
    Selection. If you have already Saved the Selection, it will appear as an Alpha
    Channel. You can select it (make it active) and click the trashcan symbol, or
    drag the selected Channel to the trashcan. If you then did not re-Save the
    image, the Alpha Channel would be there, when you Open(ed) the image. Does
    this help?
