Hello. How do you copy part of a layer to paste it to another layer or another image? I selected it with the selection tool but I don't find any "copy" or "paste" function anywhere in Pixelmator for iOS. Thank you very much in advance for your answer.

Hi flaberguest.

To get the pop-up menu, select your area, tap Done then tap on the selection. You’ll get the usual Cut/Copy/etc...

To paste what is in the clipboard, tap on the canvas and you’ll get a Paste option. The contents of the clipboard will be pasted as a new layer.

Pro-tip: when you tap on the selected area, one of the options is Duplicate. That will copy and paste in one.

Hope this helps.

Great, thank you! The process is a bit clumsy, but it is working...
