This is what I get:

Use the select keyword to select an area of an image.

When using the Select tool, the cursor is a crosshairs shape. This tool is used to select a rectangle in an image, by clicking one corner and dragging to the opposite corner.

You can drag a selected rectangle to another location in the image or cut, copy, or delete it.

Typing "select" into the search field shows the line referring to field text but you actually have to click on it to see the rest of the syntax options. Just scanning the hit list wouldn't give you the idea there was more to it.
