I think the problem is that the Gimp clipboard can only handle a single
4-value (RGBA) layer. It sounds possible to me to make it handle a set
of layers, though only the Gimp developers could say if it's really
I've often thought it would be useful if any gimp tool (including Copy),
not just movement, could be made to apply to a whole bunch of layers at
once. Perhaps add another toggle called "selected for modification" in
the Layers dialogue, along the lines of "lock for movement". And change
internal structures suitably :) I have to admit to not having looked
at the source to see if it is in any way practicable.
