3.10. Buffers

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.

Cut named

This command cuts out 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 them in a special buffer that you name using a dialog that pops up.

Copy Named

This 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 them in a special buffer that you name using a dialog that pops up.

Paste Named

This command actually just 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.
