Good day! First of all, thanks to all developers of such a wonderful program. I love Krita!
Photoshop always felt slow, heavy and inconvenient in many details, imho, Krita is much better.
But Krita lacks one simple feature: duplicate selected (in the same layer) or simply - paste in the same layer.
Consider a workflow for painting tiles. You duplicate tiles a lot (in the same layer), adding variations to them.
Currently user has to do many steps:
1.) Ctrl+R - activate tool “select rectangle” (for example)
2.) select area
3 and 4.) copy/paste selected (currently Krita pastes only to a new layer). [Two clicks: Ctrl+C / Ctrl+V or one click: Ctrl+Alt+J]
5.) T or Ctrl+T - activate tool “move” or “transform” (happens automatically by Krita settings: “activate transform tool after pasting”]
6.) drag selection to new position
7.) Ctrl+E - merge with previous layer
So, 5-7 actions required.
In Photoshop user can just ctrl-alt-click on any area (island of pixels) (without even selecting it) - and drag it.
Thanks in advance!
