    Snip & Sketch - cannot paste image into Libreoffice after Windows update


    I recently bought a new laptop.


    On the first day of use, I was able to paste an image from Snip & Sketch into Libreoffice no problems.


    The only strange behaviour was that Snip & Sketch opened a new window every time I clicked new snip

    Then there was a small Windows update.


    The next day I could not paste an image from Snip & Sketch into Libreoffice. I could paste ok into Gmail though.


    also Snip & Sketch no longer opens a new window every time I click new snip, thinking this might be related to the small Windows update as well?


    I have gone back to using the classic Snipping tool, which works fine.


    Please do not remove the classic Snipping tool ! Snip & Sketch is too flaky to rely on

    :)

  2. Snip & Sketch copy/paste does not work

    I am using the latest version of Win10. Snip & Sketch copy/paste does not work. When I Ctrl-V to paste into LibreOffice Writer, nothing happens. I can paste into Gmail, but even if I do that and then Ctrl-C that image and then Ctrl-V to LibreOffice Writer,
    all I get is a broken image symbol. The only work around I have found is to first save the file to disk and then insert the image into my document. That is far too many steps when I have been copying and pasting from the snipping tool with no problem for
    many years.

    I need this function, please do not remove the snipping tool because it still works and Snip & Sketch does not. I have seen others on the internet complaining about this issue for years with not being able to paste into several different programs... and
    still this is not resolved. So I continue to use the Snipping Tool, please don't take it away.

  3. Snip & Sketch copy/paste does not work

    Thanks for your response. The editor I use (LibreOffice Writer) is able to process images copy/pasted from other sources, including the old "Snipping Tool". I just don't understand why the same process can't be done from the new "Snip & Sketch".

    Thanks for the tip about the Feedback Hub, I sent in a report.

    Snip&Sketch copy/paste not working

    Of course. The image will paste fine into other programs. There is some property that is being set that prevents it from pasting in Live Mail. If I recopy it through an intermediate program, it then pastes fine into Live Mail. I would be happy to convert
    to Snip & Sketch if it weren't for this extra step in order to get a snip into an email. I want it to work just like the old Snip Tool does -- copy/paste works fine.
