How to replace a selection

Replace is the default selection setting. So if it’s the default setting, when would you ever use Replace outside of your initial selection? Say you have made a selection, added to it a few times and realized that that just wasn’t working. At this point you might want to start again, so Replace would come in handy.

It saves you time.
