In Editor/Library, right click, copy full path

In the editor, when you goto library, it would be nice to "right click" an image/movie and "Copy Full Path" to the clipboard.  This would allow easy uploading to other apps and browers.

Hi Richard - thanks for this suggestion. From the capture tray in Snagit Editor you can drag the image directly to the desktop or another application or web browser. We enabled this to make for easy uploading to most any destination (no need to worry about save location, file name, etc). Does that serve your purpose?

As an alternative, you can press Ctrl-S to save the file you have selected in the capture tray or the library, check the box for "copy file path," and once you save the image the file path will be on your clipboard ready to share. (Looks like we might have an issue where that selection is not remembered in the dialog between saves so I wrote that up for the devs to look at.)

ok, but your solution involves possibly resizing two windows along the way ( especially if one is maximized ) so that I can drag and drop from one window to another.  

My proposal would be right click, alt-tab, ctrl-v. Done.  Much easier than having to resize windows and then resize the windows again to get them back to their original size/position.

Also, adding this feature should only take a few lines of code to implement.

Hi Richard - just brainstorming potential solutions with you here but what if when you started to drag the image out of the editor, the editor would minimize itself to get out of the way until you finish dropping the file(s) to the destination?
