Copy and paste

The Android clipboard is almost useless for Pixly (you can't copy images or image areas like you do on Windows). So an alternative had to be made, and it was made. Pixly has its own clipboard system for copy and paste.

This means that you can copy and paste areas of images inside Pixly, even though (currently) Android doesn't allow you to. Here's how it goes:

  • Select something;
  • On the Edit menu, tap Copy Selected;
  • Choose on which frame and layer you want to paste;
  • On the Edit menu, tap Paste Selected;
  • Move, scale and rotate as desired;
  • Enjoy

All pixels that are the same color as the secondary color will be taken as background, and won't be copied. If you have problems making copy-paste work, try resetting your secondary color before copying something.
