Start-up template based on the clipboard's pixel size in open file/ recent/ templates window

Recommended Posts

Please also add the possibility to create a new document (File > New) based on the clipboard size (in pixels). This is very useful to quickly annotate images or edit them from online sources. It basically removes the step to crop/ resize the image after pasting.

In Designer and Photo (personas): File > New From Clipboard

Would be nice to also have this in the templates section,

A Template is a fixed-size document, so it seems inappropriate to have New from Clipboard there, as that creates variable-sized documents.

It can be in the window, like you have templates, open recent and also add from clipboard in there as an icon button  on the left-hand side. That would make it more accessible. That's also how other applications implemented it. So, yes, indeed not as a template but alongside the templates in the screen you'll see in startup and within reach when opening/ creating new files.


Should have phrased it better. Changed the topic title to reflect this.
