Photoshop :: Copy/paste Shape Into SAME LAYER

Jan 17, 2007

I'm trying to make a compound shape by copy/pasting a shape into the same layer and using Add to Shape area...

the regular copy/paste commands aren't working and it needs to be in the same layer so Duplicate Layer won't do it...

Photoshop :: How To Copy And Paste Shape (or Layer) From One File To Another Keeping All Of Its Attributes

Mar 6, 2013

Our department currently uses MS Paint to place varied colored boxes for call outs on top of screen figures used in our documentation. As you know, MS Paint is not a robust image editing application, and we are frustrated at its limitations (especially not having a "non-destructive" edit capability).

Consequently, we are evaluating a trial version of PS to see how a workflow could be developed that would allow the department to use call out boxes "stored" in a PS file that could be applied in an easy, consistent manner to our screen figures (but also keep each call out box editable) using PS.
 
Consequently, in PS using the shape tool, I created a file with our colored boxes for call outs, each on its own layer. Now I am trying to determine how you copy and paste a box (or layer) from this file to a "working" file (one containing a screen figure), while keeping all of its attributes (color, line weight, being editable, etc.). I can't seem to find an option to do this. Is there? If not, is there another workflow in PS that you can recommend for this type of procedure?

Photoshop :: Copy Mask On One Layer And Paste It Onto Another?

Sep 5, 2012

I do a lot of texture work and create depth by using several layers and different blending modes. I wind up masking and remasking the same thing on multiple layers -- is there a way to copy the mask on one layer and paste it onto another? I know I can drag a mask to a different layer, but that removes the first one.

Paint Shop Pro :: X4 Copy And Paste As New Layer

Sep 8, 2012

I've been using PSP since 7.

Now I'm using x4 and I noticed that when I cut/copy a portion of a pic and then paste it as a new image....then I want to copy and paste that portion back into the original photo using paste as new layer....the icon doesn't change automatically from the lasso/cut tool to the move tool.

It used to do that automatically in psp 7 so that right after I paste as new layer, i can move that portion around right away.

In x4, after you paste as new layer, you can't move that layer around because it hasn't changed automatically to the move tool. I have to manually click on the move tool everytime I want to move the layer around. It's very irritating!

Any settings I can change to make it automatically change to "move tool" right after pasting a pic as new layer?

AutoCad :: Copy / Paste Objects From One Layer In First File To Different Layer In Second File

Aug 7, 2013

I am using ACAD 2005 and am trying to copy&paste several objects from a layer I created in one .dxf file to one of the 2 standard layers (0 or Defpoints) in a new blank .dxf file.

My problem though is that if I copy and paste all of the objects (or even one of them) and them move to the new file and paste, it pastes the objects, but also "imports" into the new file the original file's layer that these objects were on.

For clarity, the new file only has the 2 standard layers and then after copy/pasting an object, the file manager shows the 3rd layer from the original file.

Photoshop :: CS4 64-bit - Copy & Paste...

Apr 24, 2009

I am running Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit.  I am having trouble copying and pasting things.  The issue is that after I copy something/Print Screen, it takes several pastes for Photoshop to finally realize the change.  Basically, the first couple of times I paste, the thing that was previously copied gets pasted it.  I don't know if it's making a difference but it switches the paste to the latest thing that was copied faster after I minimize and maximize back the program.  It's extremely annoying especially because then I have to either undo each time/delete the layers.  Plus, I do a lot of frame comparisons between different video sources and it's hard to tell whether the thing being pasted was changed or not.

Photoshop :: Copy And Paste.

Mar 28, 2004

how I can simply copy and paste an area of an image back onto the same image?

On my previous graphics software it was simply a case of highlighting the required area, click 'copy' then click 'paste' and bingo! To copy and paste on Photoshop seems much more involved including a number of complicated steps.

Photoshop :: Copy From Here...paste Over There?

Feb 14, 2008

So when you copy and then paste a selection, photoshop almost always pastes way far away from where I copied. Why does it do that and how can I make it stop?

I commonly need to be able to copy something and then paste in the exact same spot.

Photoshop :: Cannot Copy And Paste Text Into CS6

Jan 30, 2013

I am not able to copy and paste text from non-Adobe programs (like Keynote or Word) into Photoshop CS6. I get an error message reading "Could not complete the Paste Text command because the clipboard data is empty or invalid." I have tried shutting down Photoshop, shutting down other programs, re-starting my computer, adjusting my Preferences and asking Adobe by phone and chat. I am on a new iMac and have no third party plug-ins installed.
