Paste screen capture

Recommended Posts

I Know many things have been request regarding adding pictures to a comment/post.

But I do feel I need to bump this topic so it will not get bury by other stuff.

Please for the next version/release add the possibility to paste screen capture right into the text box.

For those who use Onenote from microsoft, or SnagIT/Jing from techsmyth, you know how easy it is to capture portion of your screen and paste into a document.

Not sure what you are suggesting. A screenshot is just a picture file on your hard drive. And as such you can already attach it to a post at any position you like.

Edit: or do you mean a video?

Yeah, he means to 'Right Click' the post box and a list of pasting options (Like in Microsoft Office) will pop out.

Brilliant.

This would be a nice feature. I'm used to just taking screenshots with Snagit and pasting them into e-mails. No fuss.

To add them to a forum post currently, you have to take the screenshot, open paint, save, then add the attachment... It's a lot of extra steps. It would be great to see the editor automatically parse the attachment by simply pasting it into the editor.

Or Jing.

Does CKEditor have any plugins that handle such functionality out of the box? If so you can always use one of those since you can install any CKEditor plugin in 4.0. But 4.0 won't natively have some screenshot capturing method built in I'm afraid. This isn't really something (to my knowledge at least) that can be handled strictly via web technologies.

Oh, really? That's pretty neat. This is a pretty niche request, so I think it would be great as a hook for the editor in that case.
