dragging/pasting images into TVP

Post by slowtiger » 10 Jul 2020, 12:54

If this is already possible: https://www.tvpaint.com/forum/viewtopic ... 91#p120458, I wonder why it's not made part of normal behaviour of TVP.

1. While an existing project is open, it should be possible to paste any image from clipboard.
2. It would be so nice to be able to drag one ore more selected images from the desktop and get them pasted into the top open TVP project.

And while we're at it: it would be nice to have TVP check a selected range of images before importing for dimensions, determine the largest value in each dimension, and create a new project with these, or, in case of importing into an open project, give a warning ich (and maybe which) images exceed the project's dimensions.

We improved the behaviour in the version to come. Yet the clipboard that manages the drawing data and the clipboard that manages the picture data from the outside can hardly be mixed.

Make an action button with this command:
tv_BrushFromClipboard

clicking the button will create a cutbrush from the image in the system clipboard which, like any cutbrush, can be scaled, rotated and of course, stamped.

That sounds promising. Are you talking about something like a 11.5 ?
