The clipboard menu is located in the Edit main menu and comprises four useful options which, in a way, serve as an interface between TVPaint Animation and your other software packages.
* The Copy brush to clipboard option makes the current brush available for other software packages installed on your computer.
* The Copy image to clipboard option makes the current image displayed in your project (including the background) available for other software packages installed on your computer.
Word processors, spreadsheets and digital creation software packages generally use a function referred to as Paste buffer content or Paste which you simply have to call up in order to use your brush or image.
When you use the [print screen] key on your keyboard or when you use the Copy option (to be understood "copy to buffer") in the program, it is possible to recover the image stored in TVPaint Animation :
* The Get brush from clipboard option makes the current image stored in the buffer memory of your computer available as current brush.
* The New layer from clipboard option creates a new animation layer from the clipboard.
For the latter option, ensure the size of your current project is adapted to that of the image stored in the buffer memory, otherwise the image may be cropped.
