[suggestion] Paste selection as union by default

Recommended Posts

It's better to paste as union because:

- It's no different unless the user has an active selection

- If there is an active selection, the user arguably wants to use it

- If the user doesn't want it, it takes no effort to cancel their selection first


Here's my use case:


I had to assemble a selection for the bright gray part outlined in red. This is a common requirement for me, which I haven't been able to do directly until now. I would construct that selection by creating a new layer and filling the selection in black, then selecting the next part and filling that on the same layer. Ultimately I would select the black spot in that layer and I then had the complex selection I wanted. Being able to copy/paste selections is a much better solution. I only see benefits with union paste by default, so that's why I'm suggesting it.
