"Reference Layer from Clipboard" #1748
I don't know how exactly the reference layer works now, but I think it should basically just be another project underlayed (is that a word?) under the current one. So you get to pick the size of the reference layer when you create it, and can move it around and resize and zoom it freely etc while you've got the ref layer selected.
But I realize this is a lot of groundwork to ask for, so yeah, maybe this is a good start. ^^
Mainly, I just wanted to tack this small feature into the longer list on #1321 without dredging up a thing from seven months ago directly (although, looking back on it, that is probably what I ought to have done <_<;;;).
In the context of the changes there, this is probably just a matter of adding a function to the Layer menu and three lines of code (create a blank Reference Layer+Paste from clipboard), but on its own it could represent a lot more than that, yes.
It would probably be most useful if it came after some revision that allowed Reference Layers to operate in their own colour mode instead of being coerced into an Indexed palette (if the Workspace is in 8P mode).
But yeah, pasting into an extant Reference Layer works.
