Descriptive Problem Summary:
When copy/pasting an image into a frame while it's open, it's positioned at the very bottom left of the sprite rather than where you're looking.

Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
Make an icon with a resolution of 128x16.
Copy an 8x8 piece of some other image.
Scroll all the way to the right of your 128x16 image.
Paste the 8x8 piece of icon.

Expected Results:
The image selection should be positioned where you're looking.

Actual Results:
The image selection is positioned at the very bottom left of the entire screen.
A related annoyance is when dragging a selection out of view the view port doesn't follow.
Half way there, eh?

Keep up the good work!
Speaking of the Select tool, I've found a couple of annoyances:
-The mouse can outrun the selection while dragging it
Takes speed and possibly a relatively large canvas, but it happens a lot to me somehow.

-The selection collides with the edge of the canvas
The icons we're editing are small enough to not have to actually be restricted by the canvas size. Let pixels off the edge be cut off and let them be able to come back if the pixels aren't deselected.

Thanks. Just to let you know I did consider this for 488 but I found that the paste code makes quite a few assumptions about position and I realized it was going to take longer than just a quick change to get this in. It's not a big project by any means but I was just looking at quick stuff to throw into the release within a short time constraint.

I'd like this, but it should definitely have an option to toggle between the two behaviors. Paint.NET handles it in a really annoying way by clipping off the edges of your selection if they go out of view. If this feature were to be added it should be handled more like Photoshop where you can drag things out of view but the selection is preserved and you can drag it back in without having the edges being clipped off.
