Re: [Gimp-user] How to drag layers from one image to another in Gimp 2.8?

As far as I know, this isn't possible. However, if you select the tab you want to "drag over", you can click 
Edit > Copy (or Ctrl+C), open the other image, and click Edit > Paste (or Ctrl + V). That should get the 
results you're looking for.

As for your suggestions, the second one would actually be really nice. The tabs are a little too tall for my 
taste :P

I'm using Gimp 2.8.2 on Linux.  I've configured the UI to single-window
mode and have opened multiple images, each with a tabbed display.

It is my understanding that I should be able to grab a layer from one
image and drag-and-drop it onto the tab of another image in order to
append a copy of that layer in the new image.  I have not been able to do
this.  I'm grabbing a layer from the layers dialog and dragging it to the
tab-thumbnail, but the layer is not copied to the new image.

Can anyone explain the proper procedure?  Thanks.

A couple of comments for the UI designers:

 * I find the [X] icons on the image tabs to be a real problem getting
   accidentally selected and dismissing the image when attempting to
   quickly select another tab.  I would prefer another tab dismissal
   method such as right-click-menu close.

 * Some user control over the tabs would be good.  For example, I would
   like to see the the vertical height of of the tabs be smaller and have
   the option of displaying file names and/or icons.
