I copy a piece of image and paste it. It works the first time. but when I try to do it again. I get this: "Could not complete the copy command because the selected area is empty." It does not matter which method is used to select a piece of image. version was installed yesterday. 20160113.r355.

Sounds like the layer you want to copy from isn't selected. Or you are trying to copy from an empty layer.
