3.9. Paste as New

Overview

This command can be accessed from an image menubar as Edit/ Paste as New....

Any data that is pasted from the Clipboard using the Paste As New command will create a new image that contains the pasted data. If the data that is pasted is not contained within a rectangle or a square area, any regions that cannot reach the canvas boundary are left transparent. Of course, you must Copy your selection before using this command which allows you to get an image with the same dimensions as the selection.
