What does "Copy image data" do?

Post by kaptainkory » Fri Jun 10, 2005 4:05 pm

I'm using RC6 now, so I don't remember if this function was in previous versions or not...

Edit -> Copy image data

What does this do and how do I use it? I've tried everything I know and still can't figure out what it does.

Thanks.

Instead of copying the image file it's copying the raw picture itself so you can paste it directly into an image editor. Or in other words: it's the same as opening it in an editor, selecting the whole canvas and copying it.

I also find "Copy image data" misleading. I would prefer "Copy image" (in opposition to "Copy item/file").

Even better: wouldn't it be possible to copy both to the clipboard so that what is needed in the output application can automatically be used?

Hmm, not sure whether "Copy image" would be clearer. What I would find perhaps clearer is "Paste image data" instead of "Import clipboard". But I'm not so sure with this one, either.

At the moment, when copying the filename (as string) and the file is put into the clipboard. For all I know you can put only one item per type into the clipboard, so the clipboard is full, already.
