Hi, 

 

I see that I can make a selection in one rasterized image, copy to pasteboard, then paste that selection into a second image after backing out of one image and loaded the second. 

But, is it possible to paste into selection? 

I can see via the tutorial that you can place an image into a selection, but I can't see how you can place a pasted selection, into another selection.

Hi Skiphunt,

 

Unfortunately it looks as though Paste Inside isn't possible within the iPad version. I will move this post to the Feature Requests section.

 

Thanks

Callum

Ah! There is now an iPad section available.

 

I can see via the tutorial that you can place an image into a selection, but I can't see how you can place a pasted selection, into another selection.

 

What is the name of the video tutorial in which you saw this? I was checking the Official Affinity Photo video tutorials, but I couldn't find anything on this. This sounds very useful.

Agree being able to paste is needed. I would like to be able to paste an image into new document from the iPad clipboard. I did not see any info about this. Did I miss something? I am on input overload‼️

Hi PeggyIn717,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

I'm not sure i understood your question. If you want to paste a layer or selection from one document into another, tap the ellipsis icon (three dots) on the top of the interface then select Pasteboard ▸ Copy to copy the content to the clipboard. Then open the second document, tap the ellipsis icon (three dots) again and select Pasteboard ▸ Paste. Am i missing something?

 

 

@skiphunt,

To paste inside, copy the element you want to the clipboard then with the layer/object you want to paste inside selected, tap the ellipsis icon (Photo Persona) and select Pasteboard ▸ Paste Inside.

Thanx, unfortunately that is not the info I am seeking.  I am not looking to paste from one AP document to another AP document.  I am trying to paste an image I made in Keynote into a new AP document.  That image was copied to the iPad clipboard.  I can paste into Pixelmator & other apps, however, I cannot paste the same image into an AP document.  Does that clarify my question?

Since it's just the image, I'm not sure, but you can export a Keynote file as a PDF, and Affinity can open PDF files. Copy the image from there.
