Revision History
Revision $Revision: 1.28 $ 2006-07-27 sally

Figure 10.32.  The “Buffer” submenu of the “Edit” menu

The Buffer submenu of the Edit menu

The commands in this submenu operate on named buffers. You can use the Buffers dialog to view and manage any named buffers you have created.

  • You can access this submenu from the image menubar through Edit->Buffer.

6.11.2.  Cut Named

The Cut Named command cuts the contents of the selection from the active layer in the usual way, but instead of storing the contents in the global clipboard, it stores it in a special buffer that you name using a pop-up dialog.

Activating the Command

  • You can access this command from the image menubar through Edit->Buffer->Cut,

  • or by using the keyboard shortcut Shift-Ctrl-X.

6.11.3.  Copy Named

The Copy Named command copies the contents of the selection from the active layer in the usual way, but instead of storing the contents in the global clipboard, it stores it in a special buffer that you name using a pop-up dialog.

Activating the Command

  • You can access this command from the image menubar through Edit->Buffer->Copy,

  • or by using the keyboard shortcut Shift-Ctrl-C.

6.11.4.  Paste Named

The Paste Named command simply brings up the Buffers dialog. By selecting one of the listed buffers, and pressing one of the buttons at the bottom, you can either Paste Buffer, Paste Buffer Into, or Paste Buffer as New.

Activating the Command

  • You can access this command from the image menubar through Edit->Buffer->Paste
