Clipboard options with layer masks?

Hi,

I can’t seem to figure out how to paste something to a mask. Am I missing something? Or, perhaps some trick to create a mask from a layer?

Ok, I figured out one method to transfer information to a layer mask. Create a new layer as you wish the mask to be, create a new layer mask for that layer from the layer contents (b&w option or a channel), right-click on the mask of the new layer, select to selection, delete existing mask from target layer (if exists), create new from selection – should transfer the exact mask information from the other mask, if I am correct.

double reply, apologies
