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.

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

    High improvement in text editor usability.

    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).

    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.

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

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

    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.

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

    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
