    Hi Mary, the servers won’t let me reply in the Tech forum (odd, as I can reply to other posts there) but on your question I think the marquee tool will always show marching ants. It only changes to a solid border after you’ve used ctl/cmd T to get the transform box. Make sure you extend the canvas on your new layer copy BEFORE you use the marquee tool so that you have some blank space to stretch into. 

    • Thanks for your reply Paul. Yes, I extended the border first, but I cannot get the marching ants to stop marching – have tried cal/T, cmd/T and both cal & cmd/T and none of them work – the ants continue. I rarely use Ps and this is why 🙁
