Hello! I'm a big fan of the adult cartoon South Park and i downloaded a South Park fourth grader character base a year ago, unfortunately, i ended up losing the original base but i was able to find a copy in my iPad on Affinity Photo and i exported to PSD in the desktop version of the Serif app.

 

Everything went fine until i noticed one glaring issue...the bare arms were like this:

I subtracted the arms but sadly, when i try to move the right arm folder, the bare arms doesn't move and yes i checked auto select! I turned off this function before but still doesn't work.

 

and is not just the bare arms, i also subtracted the bare forearms and they don't work as well.

At first, i thought it was a problem with Affinity Photo but i could move the arms folder just fine without any issues with both the copy saved in Affinity Photo and the psd file that i exported from this software.

This is a photoshop elements group , but I will give you my two cents.

Stop whatever you're doing with that bare arm business.

Copy the left arm.
Flip it horizontally.
Put it where the right arm goes. done.

You need to group the layers of the right arm- and move that group.
