How to copy and paste within a layer?
« on: February 19, 2012, 10:17:40 AM »
I want to copy my sprite's eye, flip it, and move it so one eye is the exact same as the other one.
But SAI isn't letting me paste... and it keeps opening up a new layer...?

Right! Paste always opens a new layer. You can then modify it (on this new layer using the transform tools) as you want it then 'merge down' the layer (CTRL E). Almost every graphics application I know does paste this way (almost!).
