Pasting text from Excel, pastes as an image

Issue

If I copy a cell from MS Excel, and then paste into Inkdrop, it pastes as an image, instead of text:

image

It should just paste as “New Speakers”. I paste with Ctrl+V

Info

  • Platform: Windows
  • Platform version: 10
  • App Version: 4.6.1

I’m using Excel 2010.

Hi Rael,

Thanks for reporting it.
That’s because Excel actually sets a cell as both an image and a text to clipboard.
You can use paste-as-plain-text plugin to force pasting clipboard data always as text:

Hey @Rael, maybe you will like the plugin I just finished.

I was thinking about this idea for a while and when I saw your topic I decided to do it.
If you can test and give me a feedback would be great. :smiley:
