I find myself in need of a new option after making a selection in an existing image. Can you please add an option to copy the current selection to the clipboard?
At the moment I make the selection, click File --> Create New File From Region, then click on the new image, select it and copy it to the clipboard.
I have taken a large number of screenshots that I need to this on and it would be faster to just copy the selection to clipboard. In case you are wondering I don't want to 'destroy' the original images.
