Why can't I copy an image from Google Docs into SnagIt? I use Ctrl-C, edit copy, and edit webclipboard in Google Docs and tried pasting into SnagIt using File-New-New from clipboard. Nothing happens.

Hi,

We did find some issues with getting images from Google Docs and we have addressed them in our 4.1.2 update.

I'm very happy with Sang It 2018. I can now copy from Google Docs or Smart Notebook into Snag It.
And, vice versa. This might not seem like a big deal, but it now works flawlessly and it is a time-saver.

Is the ability to drop a Snagit screenshot into a Google doc or Google chat a new feature?  I am not able to do that with Snagit10

Hi,

It looks like our fix from the 4.1.2 update no longer works, so Google must have changed something again. We'll take a look and see what's going on. In my clipboard manager my copied image doesn't appear at all.



It looks like if you paste into Apple's notes app and then copy from there, then it will work in Snagit. Not ideal, but it's a viable workaround for now.

Thanks Luke.  That is what I've been doing.  Funny we came upon the same solution.

I'm still having this issue as of today.  The image appears to be on the clipboard as I can paste it to Word but not between Google docs.  V2018.2.1

Thanks for reporting this. It looks like "File > New > New from Clipboard..." still works
