Copy/Cut one Image into another in Mavericks
I have been using gimp now for about 2 months and have just upgraded my OS to Mavericks and upgraded Gimp to 2.8.8.

Upon doing this I seem to have lost the ability to copy/cut an image or part thereof from one open image into another... Example:

I have an image window open with a picture a car and I have an image window open with a race track back ground.

I want to copy the car from image 1 into image 2, but for some reason I cannot do this function anymore. When attempting it, once the item is copies to the clipboard and I then swap to the second image, when I paste as a new layer it pastes the clipboard from that image and not the image from the first window...

Does anyone have an idea on how to fix this as I can no longer create the collages I have been working on for uni assignments

Cheers

No OSX expert in this old body.

That is what happens when you buy expensive dysfunctional OS's Wink

A couple of options, if the copied image is less than 1024x1024 pix then will it drag from the brushes dialog?

Out of single window mode, click and drag from layer dialog to image still works here. Does it with you?

or you might have to wait until someone fixes Gimp for the Mac.
