I'm using the CVS gimp 1.14 corresponding to the line
2000-01-08 Michael Natterer <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>
as the top entry in the Changelog, and I'd like to report a bug.
The bug I've discovered is that it is no longer possible to paste from
the default buffer to a channel or layer mask. Thus, the operations:
o Copy a layer to the default buffer using Ctl-c,
o Make a layer mask (and make sure it is active),
o Paste from the default buffer using Ctl-v, and
o Anchor the resulting floating selection by clicking on the Anchor button
does not place the paste into the layer mask! The float just
mysteriously disappears. Same behavior occurs when trying to paste
into a channel mask.
I believe this corresponds to bug #5045
[Cutting from Layer and Pasting To Channel Fails] of
which a variety of fixes were placed into CVS by Sven
and myself around 01/11 and 01/12. While the bug
discusses Layer --> Channel pastes, the underlying
problem generally affected RGB -->Grayscale
translations and would affect pastes to masks as well.
Please let us know if what you see persists in newer
Be good, be well
