...Is it the way the image is being copied into the clipboard?
Actually, that's a rather interesting Q.
I mean, the PASTE
function (with formatting) should work, but, if it doesn't, then what is in the clipboard could conceivably make a difference.
The Q then
might be: What have you got in the clipboard?
I always use @mouser's CHS
(Clipbord Help & Spell). I also use AHK (Autohotkey), and I can paste the last item copied to the Clipboard as either:
- (a) RTF (Rich Text Format) - which pastes whatever was last in the Clipboard (including image(s) and/or text), AS-IS., or
- (b) plain text (just the text, with no images or formatting)
There's a lot of stuff (formatting and images) in the Clipboard that actually never gets to be saved
in CHS, once a new COPY/CUT
is made to the Clipboard.
There are a couple of ways I know of that enable the user to save and analyse or "see" what has actually been going through the Clipboard:
(i) NirSoft Clipboardic - <https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/clipboardic.html
(ii) The last Beta of NoteFrog <http://notefrogblog.com/?p=689
>. (Now apparently back under development).
