Copy All of an image in the Library

Add a context menu option for a Library image to Copy All, just as though it was being viewed in the Editor. 

When sequentially copying multiple images from the Library to an external program, such as MS Word, you currently have to double-click the Library image to get it into the Editor, Copy All from the Editor, paste into the other app, then go back to the Library, find the next image, double-click, etc. This is a waste of time and effort. Why not just be able to copy from the Library? The current Copy menu option in the Library just copies a GUID and a generic Snagit icon. It does not copy the image like Copy All does.

That's interesting. I was looking at this and wondered if you might be able to overcome the issue by using the drag and drop like you can from the recents tray. Certainly it appears to behave the same way up to the point where you release the mouse button to drop. Then nothing further happens.

Perhaps it may save you a step by knowing you can open in the editor, then just drag from the recents tray to drop into your app? This has grown to become my favorite feature of recent SnagIt releases because it saves me the steps of first saving and naming the image, then finding where I saved it so that I can upload it into the apps or pages I use.

Cheers... Rick :)

I tried drag and drop from the Library before posting, and all it gives you is a GUID and a generic icon.
