Is there cursor selection tool for GIMP?

I mean simple mouse selector that e.g. move objects within page - with mouse cursor.

There many custom selection tools , but i'ven't found the simplest.

There is Move Tool which you can use for moving objects. Shortcut key: M.

  • Also, holding down the space bar changes the active tool to Move temporarily. The Move tool remains active as long as the space bar is held down. Dec 7, 2009 at 14:52

    DaveParillo: That's incorrect, holding space bar down scrolls the entire canvas, which is different from the move tool, which moves individual items/layers.
