You have to give the Floating Layer a Real Layer to live on first. As suggested in the docs, I click to anchor the floating selection. I have made minor cosmetic changes to those scripts essentially limited to renaming them and moving them into a sub-menu under Script-Fu. This way, layers L1,L2, L3, L4,. You'll need to delete the layers from the new image that you don't want. If you need me to, I can make a quick tutorial, but I bet you can find it in the menu.
Does this test give you a different result on windows? Moving rectangular and elliptical selections If you click-and drag a selection with handles, you move the selection outline, and you don't move the contents of rectangular or elliptic selections. With all the eye icons on, we should see the original base image. Is there a way to do the multi-layer copypasting, or is there a newer script for this? I am building a Gimp plugin in python. If there is at least one unlinked layer between each linked layer, no error will result and the contents of each of the linked layers will be merged down into the layer below it. The problem is that I couldn't find a function to copy layers from one image to another. If you are trying to scale to a larger size, note that the temporary layers are only created to the size of the selection. Press and hold the Alt or Ctrl+ Alt, Shift+ Alt, or Alt.
Put the floating selection into a new layer L1 5. This is a standard and often used shortcut that you'll find in plenty of tutorials, and if you follow that answer and change the shortcut, plenty of tutorials or answers to questions won't work for you. Provided that you have not unlinked any of the temporary layers that were created, created any new layers in the interim, or deleted any layers in the interim, the image data contained in each of the temporary layers which were created will be moved back into the layer from which it originally came, the temporary layers will be automatically deleted, and the layers which were originally linked will be re-linked. The bottom layer will remain unaffected. I could not find anything in the documentation to do that: all function adds layers into a specific image so i would have to load from file each time which is what I am trying to avoid. Lets look at a pixel that is selected 50%.
I then repeat the process six more times making sure to only have the original 64x128 space selected. Called without parameters it does create a new transparent layer of the same size as the image. But if done correctly, you should now be able to move your layer with your mouse or the arrow keys! I stumbled upon which seems to be for Gimp 2. But if you disable the selection you see that there is a faint gray border around the former ellipse. This is of course far from ideal, but I still think it's quite a solid workaround since you'll only lose one keystroke per paste operation. On the right you should be presented with a list of one or more places in which Gimp will look for Script-Fu scripts. Instead the entire background image moves.
In practice, there is a gap appearing in the position of the pasted selections. I have the following image, which I open in gimp: I then use the rectangle selection tool to select a character and copy the selection. Also any image you copy becomes a usable brush immediately from the clip-board. This is because the floating layer is rendered as though it is part of the active layer, even though you can still manipulate it separately. I would like to load a layer in memory, based on an file, and then adding it to several images thus avoiding the loading time from file. I understand that this could just as well have been posted on the Inkscape mailing list if there is any but I'm only a subscriber to this one, so here goes nothing.
Be sure you are selecting the layer with the image, because if for any reason there is another layer maybe you could have created accidentally and this layer is not in the area you are selecting, it could seems to you like an empty transparent layer. There is no way to fix this except filling the area in the lower layer with a background color. To move their contents, as with rectangular and elliptical selections, you have to hold down Ctrl+ Alt keys or Shift+ Alt and click-and-drag. If you click-and-drag the selection without handles, you create a new selection! And you said you were new in Gimp so i figured i would give you a small heads up on it's capabilities. I then change the canvas size to be, e.
At this point I unlink all of the layers. The pasted image can be moved. Unfortunately I don't think this is possible. How do I move this pasted layer? I then link the layers together and select the whole image. I have spent over an hour trouble shooting, and at a loss to figure this one out.
Now I have a relatively large layer group, which I would like to copy to the other image. You, of course, can use it however you like. This is the shortcut that will convert a floating selection to a new layer. Think of a floating layer as sitting on the surface of the active layer—you can move it around just fine, but it looks like it's part of the active layer. Just click it and the image gets pasted. This will automatically paste the image in a new window.
This will keep them intact, including any possible layer parasites this is important for text layers, for example. Hover the mouse cursor over a side or corner handle, and the arrow keys and combinations can change the size of the selection. The problem is the same as in the following procedure: 1 Create new white image and select an antialiased ellipse 2 fill the ellipse with black 3 fill the ellipse with white. The gap which appears between layers positions can be much more than one pixel. If the arrow keys do not cause the selection to move, try hovering the mouse cursor over the selection first.
Now we fill it with white again: it becomes 25% black 1 - 0. But as long as this is only a one-time transfer i. You can copy a layer group easily by copying and pasting to different canvas. This is sometimes a bit surprising and there is already a bug filed against this. Any ideas what stupid thing I might have done to cause this? Typically I am zoomed in on an area say bottom right of image when I cut a region and 'paste as new layer'.
