How to import an image from the clipboard? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Copying the image in Jpg format I clicked Ctrl + V, but nothing happened. Then I went into the main toolbar-> editing. Paste item was unavailable (blocked). Through importing everything works fine. What do I need to do to want images from Clipboard?

  • Heh, heh... try using the Copy command (Ctrl-C) instead of the Paste command (Ctrl-V) when copying the image. You will then find that the Paste command is available under the Edit menu item.  ;-)

    Click the desired item to select it, press Ctrl-C to copy it to the clipboard, then click in EW to focus the location where you want to paste it, then press Ctrl-V (or click "Edit|Paste") to paste it there.

  • I ' ve tried. "Ctrl + C" or "Copy" is not important. It's the same thing. Ctrl + C - this is only a hot key. I even checked it. In another application inserted the copied image. That is, the image is on the Clipboard. That's just Microsoft Expression Design refuses to insert.

  • Well, now. I'm not certain, but I would guess that Design's native format is vector, and when a document is open, it expects the clipboard to contain a vector image (or perhaps a path, etc.) before it enables the Paste command. JPEG/JPG is a raster image format, incompatible with a vector document, and therefore Design requires you to utilize its Import feature to bring the image into the document, rather than permitting paste of that format.

    I don't use Expression Design, preferring either Adobe Illustrator or Xara Photo and Graphic Design, but I do have it installed, and that appears to be what is going on. Try another application, or work around Design's foibles. Your choice...  ;-)
