Pasting image from clipboard no longer uploads


Steps to reproduce

Starting from scratch, what are the steps to make the bug happen? The fewer the steps, the better.

Copy image to clipboard in chrome, paste into dynalist, uses URL instead of uploading the image

Expected result

What do you expect to see after carrying out the steps above?

Image being uploaded to dynalist and then inserted

Actual result

Instead of the expected result, what happened?

Links to the image directly


Which operating system are you using? Which browser are you using? If you’re using a desktop or mobile app, what’s the version number of Dynalist?

Additional comments


@Erica any update on this?

If this is intentional please at least provide an option in the settings to switch it off.
It is very uncomfortable to rely on the image host I copied the image from to not disappear.


Hi @Louis_Kirsch,

Sorry I didn’t see your original post.

Another post discussed the same issue too: Can't paste an image into Dynalist on Win10/Chrome

We wanted to add this but haven’t had the time for it. It’s not as easy as turning on/off something though. Chrome used to send the pasted image to us in raw data format, now we only get the URL and have to fetch and upload. Sorry about the delay.
