Copying selection from one layer into another

Post by Krischu » Fri Oct 18, 2019 10:27 am

Thought it would be easy but can't figure out at the moment how I can copy a selection from one layer to the same position into layer 0 (or another one)?

EDIT: I copied the layer once, deleted everything despite the items wanted, then changed the selected items to layer 0 and deletd the copied layer afterwards. Kind of clumsy but I'm expecting the elegant solution soon :) Ah there is already.

Quickest I can think of:
1. Edit > Duplicate [DP]
This creates a copy in place and selects it.
2. Change layer in property editor
