Copy-Paste images


Bad New - Found 2 places where must browse for and select an image file - paste from clipboard doesn’t work.

  1. Add Result dialog - at bottom of dialog appears a gray box with text “Drop files here to attach, or click to browse.”
  2. When viewing a Test Case and its results - Below the “Results & Comments” tab, there’s another gray box with same wording as previous item.

Hi Dan,

Thanks for reaching out! The inline functionality is only for embedding images so you can utilize the paste from clipboard feature in these sections (since only images are expected here). That said, the ‘Drop files here to attach, or click to browse.’ section would accept various file types, therefore, the paste from clipboard is not supported here and you would just need to navigate to the file as you mentioned.

Hope this helps clarify!
