    Hey guys, sorry if I'm not allowed to post this here, but I couldn't find anywhere else that would fit better.

    Basically, I'm trying to copy some tiles into a character spreadsheet, and photoshop isn't copying the blank space. This has worked just fine until today and I can't figure out what could have changed.

    Here's what it looks like when I copy it.

    And here's what it looks like when I paste it into a fresh file.

    As you can see, it doesn't copy all of the blank space, making it hard to center. Any ideas why iy does this?

    as far as I've ever experienced, PS doesn't ever copy blank space. You should be able to center it if you have grids set up though.

    I know Ctrl+Shift+V will paste in the same place, and if you select an area and paste normally, it'll paste in the center of the area

    another way is to select the grid first, than past it to center it directly, but if its 1 pixel off, it will be 1 pixel left or right like a grid of 48px and the width of 31 wont center 100% and never wil :)

    as a photoshop expert, I can tell because im using it over 10 years :D
