When cloning a Layer: To avoid the cloned Layer becoming hidden behind the current Layer, I wrote this extended Layer cloning procedure:

with ImageEnView1 do
    var X := CurrentLayer.PosX + (Currentlayer.Width div 2); // x-position-center of the current Layer
    // x-position of the cloned Layer depending on the horizontal x-position-center of the current Layer:
    var _X: Integer;
    if X <= (IEBitmap.Width div 2) then
      _X := CurrentLayer.PosX + CurrentLayer.Width
      _X := CurrentLayer.PosX - CurrentLayer.Width;
    var OriginalName := CurrentLayer.Name;

      CurrentLayer.LayerIndex, // Insert position
      CurrentLayer,            // Layer to clone
      _X,                      // X-Position of the cloned Layer
      CurrentLayer.PosY        // Y-Position of the cloned Layer

    CurrentLayer.Name := OriginalName + '_Cloned';

Here is the result:

Can this be simplified in any way?

Hi Peter
