Make a layer from background. Select something e.g. rectangle with marquee tool or other. Transform the area with Ctrl-T. Then try to subtract from remaining selection with any selection tool, e.g. magic wand. WTF? )

p.s. checked in PS CS6 and CS3.

Are you committing the transform before trying to modify the selection? You can't modify the selection during a modal transform.

Ok guys.)
Try to reduce the area so that the empty area appears. Do not deselect after transform. Any subtracting from selection erase a part of selection and pixels in the layer as well!!!!.

ps.sorry for my english)

I think I know what you're seeing -- you have the selection floating, and you're subtracting from the selection. That means that you're changing the visibility of that part you have selected (removing part of the selection, hiding part of what you had selected). That would be the expected behavior, until you deselect (and thus defloat your floating selection).

I right now downloaded from adodes ftp AdobePS6Tryout.exe (PS6, not CS). Install it on vmware. The bug is there also!. After reducing selected area (ctrl-T) I just subtract a corner of the selection with lasso. Pixels are gone!


What can you say on this? )

Because so far you're describing expected behavior...
