How to save a Cropped Image

I'm trying out Capture One and am stuck on how to "cut" my cropped image and "paste" it as it's own image. I've looked through the online and help files and cannot find any mention of being able to do so. Can someone point me in the right direction?

When using the crop tool, you can crop the image (obviously) while it still shows the entire image. You can move the crop around, for example. When you select another tool, the Pan (hand symbol) for example, only the crop is shown. So far for the preview.

The crop you made is applied on output. CO6 is not a pixel editor like Photoshop, where you apply the crop on the original image, throwing unwanted pixels out of the window. With CO6 you process the image to a new JPEG or TIFF image while your crop is applied.

Adjust a crop by dragging the edges of the preview inwards (the cursor will turn into a two-way arrow) until the desired crop has been achieved.
Click within the crop boundary (where the cursor will turn into a cross) and drag the selection to move the entire selected cropped area.
Rotate the crop to suit by grabbing just outside the corners of the crop frame (the cursor will change to a curved arrow).
The original image with the cropping mask is shown in the thumbnails.
Reselect the Crop tool at any time to readjust the crop settings.
The crop masking can be changed in Preferences. Go to Capture One>Preferences and select the Crop option to change the opacity and brightness of the mask being used.
Click the Reset Crop adjustments button to undo a crop and revert to the original un-cropped image.
