I am not quite understanding your issue.

If I  take a snapshot and cutout a section and save it and then reopen it it works fine.

What am I  missing?

thanks Jason.  the pasted item remained  like its own "object" in the page and the system would not let me "de-select" it 
 the flatten step did just that. 
thanks again for taking the time

@annelewson: maybe you didn't Flatten the pasted piece before you tried to cut it out? Flatten it, then try again.

A snapshot is already "flattened" since nothing has been added to it to layer it.

i.e. You can’t flatten an image that is already flat.

@jasons: she captured a snapshot (which, you're right, was already flattened), then she cut out a piece of the original capture and pasted it into a new image. The pasted piece is then an object until it's flattened. Thanks for your comment because I think it added more understanding to the issue.

@DEB thanks Deb
this was the step I needed  : Flatten the image  It allowed to then cut   a piece out.  

Thanks
Anne
