can't copy & paste
Hi, I just got Gimp 2.8 for Mac. I can open a picture, do a blur and export. The copy paste is giving me problems. It worked once. I make a selection with the rectangle and do a control c. I also tried the menu. The selection doesn't go to the clipboard. After 6 tries, the same original copy was the only one in there.
Can somebody help me?
Thank you.
Terry

RE: can't copy & paste
OK, I found out what was wrong. I thought that as long as the object was selected, the computer would know what to copy; but you have to have the mouse over the selection when copying.
Yep, this stuff has little things to learn.
