0.84: Copy Image does not work!

Postby m.Th. » Thu Jan 26, 2017 9:17 am

We cannot copy the image to clipboard and paste it to any other program (eg. Word).

Steps:

1. Double-click on an image to open in a new Tab
2. Edit | Copy
3. Switch to Word / Outlook
4. Edit | Paste

Expected: The image should appear in the target program
Actual: The file appears as an OLE package (IF exists) or an error message appear, if the image does not exist - for example, if we do a screenshot.

Thanks! :)

Boy... Someone should definitely rename 'Copy' to 'Copy file' - it will help a lot (users won't leave, users will be happier, users will not waste time to post here... 8) )

I'd expect:
In Browser: "Edit » Copy" copies the selected file(s)
In Viewer: "Edit » Copy" copies the image's (selected) contents.

Is there something to do/fix? Can this bug report be closed?

This does NOT work. See my original post.

Thank you for your fast response.

Actual behaviour: Viewer: "Edit » Copy" copies file to clipboard. :bug:
Expected behaviour: Viewer: "Edit » Copy" copies image's contents to clipboard

Consequences:
- New menu "Edit » Copy to Clipbard » File" is needed.
- Menu "Edit » Copy to Clipbard » Image data" is no longer needed because there is "Edit » Copy"
Note:
This can be fixed by simply swapping functions behind "Edit » Copy" and "Edit » Copy to Clipboard » Image data" and renaming menu item "Image data" to "File".

:arrow: Reproduced

I don't understand, 'Edit>Copy' copy image in clipboard (with filename), where is the problem?

The problem is that in Viewer (view mode), Edit » Copy doesn't copy just the image data but several things to the clipboard at the same time using various types:
1. Path + Filename (Text)
2. Path + Filename (Unicode text)
3. Image data (Bitmap)
4. File (File)

When pasting the clipboard into Word for Windows for example, this causes the reported problems. Therefore it's better that Edit » Copy in Viewer (view mode) copies the image data to the clipboard, only, just like Edit » Copy to Clipboard » Image data currently does.

O.k., thank you, I can also reproduce the problem. Issue 1242 is fixed in next version.
