I got that working for a rectangular copy and paste, but when I use the
elipse select, the free select or the intelligent scissors, it cuts as per
the created outline, but when I paste (into OpenOffice Writer) it pastes it
as rectangular picture.
Is there any way that I can paste it as per the original cut?
