This is how we feather selection, to cut something use Edit > Cut or Edit > Copy, Copy Merged.

 

Can you post screenshot with error message and Layers pane visible?

Unfortunately I'm getting the same issue - Program Error whenever I try to use the selection tool at all, whther it be feathering, transforming, etc. In fact, when I make a selection, the "marching ants" never march. They just sit there, motionless and sullen. I've reset all the preferences, but to no avail. Any help?
