Cannot copy img from one note and paste it to another

Recommended Posts

Hello Evernote Team

I have been using the web client ever since it's got the new facelift and new search features.Really loving the product now.

However, I have been facing a minor issue in the web client. I cannot copy an img from a note and paste to another note. This can be done, in the Windows and Mac platforms. 

Please add this into your list. It's a minor change, nevertheless a crucial one!

Thanks in advance.

Hi, and welcome to the forums. These are user-to-user spaces primarily; Evernote staff may look in, but you're not addressing the Evernote team directly.

That said, I find that I am able to right-click on an image in a note, select Copy image, and then in another note paste the image successfully using either right-click or Ctrl+V. The right-click menu is controlled by my browser, not Evernote. So perhaps it is a browser issue. What browser are you using?

The desktop clients run as an application. So the rules for applications apply. And it can open multiple notes in own windows each.

The web client is nothing else than a browser session. Select the picture, and depending on OS and browser use ctrl/cmd c - ctrl/cmd v to copy and paste. Or if not allowed, select the picture, right click, save picture to desktop / folder, and paste it from there into the other note.

Because the web client can only open one note at a time, to move by drag & drop you would need to open 2 sessions side by side. But because now two sessions would be running at the same time, this can create syncing Conflicts. I would use one of the other methods.
