Hi Christoph,

"Paste absolute" is a *very* nice feature! :)

Draw 2 picture frame a little apart from each other. In one frame, 
import a large picture (larger than the frame) and then copy the pic 
(content of the frame). Paste absolute in the next frame and you'll see 
in that second frame the picture as it is at the position of this 2nd 
frame from the point of view of the first frame.

I am sorry for the poor explanation. It's easier to show than to tell, I 
think. Anyway, give it a try and you'll see exactly what I mean. So you 
can have 2 frames holding part of a picture at the exact position as if 
you had only one big frame with a picture cut in piece into it.
