How Do You Select a Subportion of an Image Using LibreOiffice Draw?

Problem scenario
You want to copy a subarea of a copied screenshot (just like Paint in Windows). How do you copy a rectangle cropped selection of a pasted screen shot using LibreOffice Draw?

1. Open LibreOffice Draw and paste the image in.
2. Click on the square icon in the upper right. It is an image of a square with sides extended on the left upper and right lower corners like this:

Click that beige/orange square with an empty middle.

Now you can select a subimage by moving a blue symbol on the perimeter inward.
