3.10. Paste Into

The Paste Into command acts in a similar way to the Paste command. The primary difference becomes apparent if there is a selection within the canvas. Unlike the Paste command, which simply centers the pasted image data over the selection and replaces the selection with its own, Paste Into clips the pasted image data by the existing selection. The new selection can be moved as usual, but it is always clipped by the original selection area.

If no selection exists, the Paste Into command places the data from the Clipboard into the center of the canvas, as the Paste command does.
