IJ1 Cut/Copy/Paste gets tangled with IJ2 functions on Overlays

This is a tough one to describe since I've seen just about every combination of weirdness happen here. What I THINK is happening is that the IJ1 commands are somehow getting confused with cut/copy/paste commands on the tools built in to the overlays.

Try this:
open clown.jpg
draw an ellipse overlay
edit > copy
select the overlay and delete it
edit > paste
(the overlay is pasted)
select the pasted overlay and delete it
edit > paste
(the overlay is pasted WITH the contents of the selection this time)

This behavior is different, but nearly as strange if the overlay isn't deleted.

Assigning to Barry, since I know he was looking at the paste logic earlier today.

Can no longer duplicate. I fixed paste operations when squashing bug #847. Perhaps this is fixed. I have an email into Adam to get clarification.

  • Resolution set to fixed

After clarifying with Adam this seems fixed.
