This is kind of a third-string request, but it would be really handy to have an Edit option that temporarily flattens the visible layers, copies the selected area to the clipboard, and then undoes the flatten.
Obviously, this is easy enough to do manually, but would be nice to have a macro for.

Thanks for considering it! 💭

Sorely missing this feature. I come from photoshop and use Aseprite for pixel art because it's so much better suited for the task, but man copying "what you see" is really handy if you keep character parts on separate layers and want to move some of them to a separate image to try out some things.

In Photoshop it's Ctrl-Shift-C which is not yet taken in Aseprite as far as I know.

Ctrl+Shift+C is Save Copy As on Aseprite, I'm not sure if we should change the shortcut to other thing and make Ctrl+Shift+C execute this Copy Merged action. What do you think people?

A possibility:

  • Ctrl+Shift+A: It's File > Save Copy As
  • Ctrl+Shift+C: The new Edit > Copy Merged

Not on my PC right now, but is there some combination with S still free? Like CTRL+Shift+S? I think having all save options mapped to various combinations of S might be intuitive.

The important part is that the feature exists, the keymapping may be changed indiviually (although I advocate sensible default mappings of course)

It might be Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S

Cerno-b commented May 13, 2016

Hm, that seems a little inconvenient. :/

Maybe that function doesn't really need a default shortcut after all?
Don't know how often people use it though.

I suppose Save Copy As is used quite often to export an .ase image as a .gif file (and e.g. with a automatic 200% resize)

Cerno-b commented May 13, 2016

I see. Then Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S would be too complex I guess. I'll think about this some more when I can look at the tool again, but as I said, it's probably not an issue I would lose any sleep over.

Actually there is already Ctrl+Alt+Shift+K to change keyboard shortcuts, and it looks like Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S is even easier to press in the keyboard.

I use Save Copy As for a bunch of different things, but I don't usually use the hotkey to get there. For copy-saves I used often, I generally use Export instead.

I'm glad this has gained traction, though! :D Looking forward to it!
