This is on Win 10 using Scriv for Windows 188.8.131.52
I am currently using Scriv to build a Technical manual - so it uses lots of screenshots etc. Most of these images reside either in MS-Word docs, or as stand-along image files (jpg, png, gif etc).
Regardless (or so it seems) of how I “copy” the image…
(Incidentally, I have tried CTRL-C or context menu “copy” if from inside Word - I have also re-saved the image in Word to a stand-alone image file, and copied it by opening it in an image editor, or simply CTRL-C on the image file itself, plus just dragging the file from a folder into scriv).
… when I come to paste it into Scriv it’s 50/50 whether the paste “works”. When it does work, happy days. When it doesn’t nothing appears at all - although sometimes there seems to be a “dot”, so it looks like it has potentially pasted something. If I try to do anything with that dot it disappears (like select it).
Eventually, I can usually get it to paste by trying various things (none of which seem to be a consistent answer, so I tend to troll through these methods every time):
Tried: CTRL-V, “paste” from a menu, dragging source file to editor, clear space and remake space in the editor, switch to different file and back, save the project, restart scriv
There seems no rhyme or reason as to when an image file will cause a problem or why - and what seemed to be a problem file one day, is not the next. Usually I’m not doing to much picture stuff in Scriv, but this project demands it and as a tool for this sort of thing Scriv rocks. But the inconsistent way this currently behaves is getting frustrating and wasting a lot of time…
Any thoughts folks?
