3.9.  Paste

The Paste command puts whatever is in the Clipboard from the last “Copy” or “Cut” command into the current image. The pasted section becomes a “floating selection” and is shown as a separate layer in the Layers Dialog.

If there is an existing selection on the canvas, it is used to align the pasted data. If there is already a selection, the data is pasted using the selection as a center point. If you want the selection to be used as a clipping region for the pasted data, you should use the “Paste Into” command.

[Note] Note

You can have only one floating selection at any one time. You cannot work on any other layer while there is a floating selection; you have to either anchor it or remove it.

3.9.1.  Activate the Command

  • You can access this command from the image menubar through EditPaste.

  • or by using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+V.
