Need a counterpart to the Cut Out function

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Insert space tool

I often find myself wanting to expand an area in order to make room for other elements.

I'm a big fan of shrinking an area to remove unwanted space, but this is the opposite. 

It would be cool to see a feature that was very similar to the cut out. Or possibly piggyback onto the cut out and make it also become a horizontal or vertical insert. 

The thought would be to work just like the cut out does presently, where you select vertical or horizontal, then either offer a toggle option that makes it insert or use a modifier key. Basically it would sample a selected area and duplicate the sample as you clicked and dragged to "expand" or to "stretch" the area.

I could also see this working to either make the image larger overall or to just act on the area inside the current image size.

Ooh yes please, from a non-Rick.  Would save me having to select and move either a complete vertical or horizontal section of the image and then fill the area with the background colour.

That's what I do now. It would be great to have an option like Rick Stone suggested.
