Copy and move the selected area to a new layer in the same position.
This function is similar to the functions with the same names in Photoshop, and more powerful. Unlike them, it can copy / cut content, not just from one layer, but also from the layer groups.
In Photoshop, this is not possible :)
This plugin requires Python!
If you have the "<Image>/Filters/Python-Fu/Console" menu item you are all set. If not, install Python support for GIMP.
