I just wantet to copy a rectangle area from a source-layer to a target layer
of an image. That's what I done first:
(gimp-rect-select image 0 0 layer-width height REPLACE FALSE 0)
(let ((floating-sel (car (gimp-edit-paste target-layer FALSE))))
This works for a lot of cases BUT if I have an image showing a figure on
a transparent background (with alpha channel), something strange happens:
The position of the figure on the target-layer is shifted
(an the only the figure itself is selected)
It only works if the bounding box of the visible parts equal the selection.
I got the same results using the GUI (also with select-all).
How can I avoid this?
Is there a faster way to transfer the layer contents to another layer,
avoiding the intermediate step of the buffer?
