Copy and paste images into WYSIWYG editing areas (particularly notes)

We've been using Google Docs for creating internal training documents, and have gotten VERY used to the copy and paste of images directly into the documents.  We are transferring those docs into Aha, but are finding it cumbersome not being able to copy the images easily, and possibly not worth doing.  Therefore we end up defaulting to linking to google docs, but are no longer searchable within Aha.

    Get ready for even more team collaboration. You can now use rich styling tools including the ability to copy and paste images inline, new font colors, and highlighting to tell a better story. Write and edit alongside your colleagues and view changes in real time.

    Hi there. Yes, we currently have improvements to the editor in development that will include the ability to paste images.

    Is this still 'planning to implement'? this is the one 'deal breaker' feature and is the reason we can't use aha for creating stories/bugs

    Hi there. Yes, this is actually in development now! Keep an eye on this idea for an update when it is available.

    Is there an update on this? It's 2 years old and was marked "Likely to implement"!

    We add images to nearly every single idea, feature and master feature, and often requirements too, and right now the painful workaround is to sync with JIRA, go there, paste the images in, then go back to Aha!

    Please, please, please add the ability to paste an image directly into the text editing areas, like JIRA has.

    A real pain. It should be as easy as in jira/confluence! ;-)

    Is this even on a roadmap?  Just about every other tool I use has this feature.

    Would be great to see implemented with comments, to quickly be able to paste images/ snips without having to go through the tedious process of attaching an image.

    Would love to see this -- need to show prototypes, etc. in the Aha requirements.  Most effective if you can just paste the image (not attaching the file).

    Agree -- I don't always have files saved, but I always have them in my clipboard!

Copy images in Text boxes

Often if there is an issue with a feature I will add a screen shot that I've grabbed from the dev region to show the developer what to change. I save the image to clipboard and then copy to the email body. It's a lot quicker than adding a file. ...

Support pasting of pictures directly into Aha to view alongside of text and without requiring user to upload file

I want to be able to embed pictures along with the text in virtually all elements within Aha where you can enter text. My need is two-fold. First: I don't want readers to have to open attachments to see the images. It's an extra unnecessasry clic...

Add ability to copy and paste an image as an attachment

Adding the ability to copy and paste images as an attachment would allow users to quickly grab screenshots and add them to ideas/features.

Add possibility to copy&paste images while entering a new idea

Currently it is very difficult to add images (i.e. screenshots) to an idea. It is required to first store the screen shot to disk and add it as a file to the idea, which makes it difficult to put it in the right context (especially in case of seve...
