Re: [Gimp-user] Copy selection to a new layer

I'm using Gimp 2.10.6 and I wonder how I'm supposed to copy a small
selection of a particular layer in a huge image to a new layer or perhaps
an existing layer. When I hit Ctrl+c, the whole layer is copied to the
clipboard, not just what's in the current selection.
I do my selection with the rectangle selection tool (shortcut R).

How is this supposed to be done?
I searched the web but I didn't find anything that actually worked.

It is done like before... However, in 2.10, you don't have a true selection until you have "commited" it in the tool, so you cannot just use "drag-rectangle, Ctr-C" as you did in 2.8. You have to do "drag-rectangle,[enter],Ctr-C" or "drag-rectangle,double-click inside rectangle, Ctrl-C".
