    Hi, I'm trying to do this tutorial to make a sphere:

    http://www.phong.com/tutorials/sphere/

    On step two it says to hit delete after I contract and feather, but
    when I hit delete the entire layer deletes instead of just my
    selection. How can I delete just the selection?

    Thank you for any help.

    Hi jmDesktop,
    I tried but I cannot reproduce your problem. The tutorial seems to
    work fine as written. Maybe you could try using the menu Edit>Clear
    command instead of the Del key just for testing.

    Good luck,
    Ron

    It was me. I used a shape instead of the marquee tool. Sorry for the
    post.
