When you click on the File option, you will bring up a window
giving you the following choices:
If you choose the New Canvas option, then Xpaint will
automatically give you a canvas the size 640x480. If you
wish to set the size of the canvas, choose the New With Size...
option, which will bring up another window in which you will set
the parameters. If you already have an image you wish to ``paint'',
then choose the Open option where you will be asked which
file in your directory you wish to use. The Load Clipboard...
choice implies that you already have some image you wish to paint,
but you also wish to place this image within the canvas.
Once you have a canvas, and you have loaded the clipboard, click
on the button
in the main window and choose the Edit/Paste
option available on top of the canvas. The file you chose will appear
in the lower left of the canvas, and you may move it to its proper
place by holding the left mouse button down while placing the image.
Once you have finished your Xpaint session, you may choose the
Quit option under File to exit.
