Using "Copy" on an image doesn't copy it in the clipboard

Agreed. It is ridiculous that this doesn't work and has been raised throughout the preview, beta and now release stages. The only workaround is to download the image and then insert it where you want it or to drag it to the desktop and then from the desktop to the target document.

funny thing is, tried to copy/paste some pictures from the v10 client (up to date) to a note in Evernote web in chrome - worked!

pasting same pictures in word gives a blank picture

Same here. I right click on the image in Evernote and select "Copy" and it doesn't go to the clipboard.

To reproduce it, I copied some text in an Evernote note, pasted it into Word, no problem. Then I copied an image from the same note, and pasted into Word and the text that I had just pasted was pasted again. The image never goes to the clipboard. You can also reproduce this by just highlighting an entire note, including all words and images, copy it, then paste into Word. The images don't go.

Extremely frustrating, as this is something I need to do a lot. The only workaround I can come up with is doing a screenshot of the note, then paste into Paint or any image editing app, crop it, then copy and paste from there. WAY too many steps, and of course that's just not the original image.

Version: 10.6.9-win-ddl-public (2254)

The problem is it doesn't Copy anything to the Windows Clipboard, as it should, as the old Evernote did, and as Evernote Legacy still DOES:

This is still a problem in 10.8.5...    how long is it gonna take to fix it?  years, like the "disable spell check" option? 

Possibly not years but, like the spell check thing, it could be months.

Sure is such a difficult issue to fix that's gonna require a very long time to investigate and debug.

New 10.9.10 version released and still the exact same problem. 🤦‍♂️

Could anybody from EN team acknowledge the problem at least?

Same issue on macOS, FWIW. Another user has posted a couple of technical support responses related to reporting this issue, so it appears to be a known issue since at least January:

Thanks for these posts. We do not yet have an ETA on when copying images will return to the windows desktop app. I will post an update here when I receive one. Thank you for your patience.

I can't understand how such a basic and useful feature was *removed* from a software that had it since many years ago...    and how can something as basic as putting an image in the windows clipboard, which any software does, can take *months*.

It doesn't take months if that is the only thing you have to focus on. But there are dozens of niggly 'basic' issues that need attention. They all interconnect and each person affected thinks it is the most important issue that should only take a moment to fix. This issue is even more frustrating in that the images can be copied to a directory on the computer eg you can drag and drop the image to the desktop. The problem is the extra step into a third party application. I can describe what needs to be done in a couple of seconds. It would take me forever to work out the fix.

For now I either work with the legacy program which does everything it ever did or I workaround this using the desktop as a temporary staging post for images I need to copy to another application.

Copying edited images to a clipboard and then inserting them into a Word document is literally all I use Evernote for. I just downloaded this version because the older version was repeatedly freezing, and I'm now EXTREMELY frustrated that I'm going to have to create an elaborate and unwieldy workaround to do a task that literally used to take seconds. I've used Evernote for years but am not sure if I can continue with this version at all.

Not ideal, but a working solution.

What do you mean by "copy  to desktop", Evernote is NOT putting the image on  the clipboard, so there is nothing to copy.

This is what Evernote puts in the windows clipboard when you click "Copy"

To be precise, drag & drop it to the desktop.

It works with some apps to d&d it directly, for others not. For those where it does not work, d&d to the desktop, then d&d from there into the app.

It is a workaround, use it or forget it. 

And the correct word is "Thank you" if another user tries to help you out of a problem.

Why is it that a feature that worked just fine on a previous version just can't be fixed in the current one?  Users are forced to try to use inconvenient workarounds to compensate for less functionality in a program for which we're being told to pay more.

So let me get this straight:

1. We can no longer cut and then paste elsewhere, either a photo or selected text from an Evernote note.

2. From time to time, all notes, from one or several notebooks, suddenly go blank.  "Luckily" the notes are not lost, and can be retrieved by closing Evernote, closing all Evernote-related processes using Windows Task Manager, then clicking the Evernote icon once or twice in the taskbar, then right-clicking the icon in the taskbar and then left-clicking open.  Such a nice workaround.

3. From time to time, but way too often, Evernote displays a "cannot load" error message, forcing restart, even though memory usage is 30% and processor usage is 6-10%.

4. And no fixes from Evernote tech support or management - threads continue for years.  Every so often, an "official" Evernote person says "problem fixed" - that note only to be followed by one that says "no it's not."

As the thread is correctly titled, there is a problem with copy & paste of pictures. This is described, workarounds communicated, waiting for a fix.

It is wrong that the same would be true for text. Text can be copied, cut, pasted, even drag & dropped.

IMHO you should first TRY if your opinion about how the product works is covered by FACT.

Because since you obviously don't try (this is not the only post in which you describe problems that don't exist), you are posting factual nonsense in the forum, for others to read and maybe act on it. I am not discussing your opinions (that make me wonder what you are doing here, just BTW), I am writing about false problem descriptions.

So please do your homework before contributing to the forum.

I can confirm with version  10.23.7 for Windows I'm able to copy some images, to the clipboard and in turn to other applications. There doesn't seem to be any logic behind which ones I'm able to copy to the clipboard. Drag and drop still doesn't work from the Windows client.

Aaaand...    it doesn't work again in 10.24...    🤦‍♂️   just WTF...

Still seems to be working for me. @Daveytdid note some variability above but so far I have not had any issues.

This has been a cluster for over a year. The only solution I have is to Snip the image from the EN then paste where I want it. But such a pain. I have "instructional" email templates I store in EN and every time I cut and paste, I have to manually Snip and Paste the images into the email. With this much time passed and so many other updates, most of which I could care less about, I've concluded they just don't think this is an issue and do not plan to every fix the issue.

This came with the 10.23 release, and is still on the current 10.24 release:

  • We made some changes to the way the app handles dragging-and-dropping and copying-and-pasting files between apps. Because it's important to play well with others.

Works for me since the same release on the Mac.

To work around it, it usually worked to drag any file to the desktop, drop it there briefly, pick it up again and drop it at the destination. Worked both in and out of EN. But as I said and others commented, not necessary any longer if you run the latest release.

If it does not seem to stick, log out of EN and restart the PC once.

Ok, so I've done some playing about. I can consistently drag and drop to the desktop but drag and drop to Word doesn't work. Copy and paste seems to depend on the size of the image. I have a lot of full screen 1080 snips that I use for notes, user manuals etc, copying these into another application doesn't work yet any smaller images copy and paste just fine.

@Daveyt Drag and drop does not seem to be working in Windows but right click on the image, copy and then paste does work of passing into Office 365 applications. Copy & paste is unreliable with other applications. So I can copy & paste into Word but not into Photoshop. Many other users have a similar experience on Windows. I think Mac users have fewer issues.

No issue on the Mac - since the latest releases it really works fine to drag & drop right between applications. Up to now I have not found an app that is not working - unless the app itself can't handle the format of what is dropped.

If the app for example just handles pictures, dropping a text on it will not cause anything to happen. But that's OK for me.

Hope they really get this sorted out on Windows now as well.
