Right clicking and choosing Copy Image is broken

My version is 5.5.0

Steps to reproduce
Right-click on any picture in any channel. Choose Copy Image.
Try to paste the picture in another channel.

Expected behavior
Image is pasted.

Observed behavior

I think I found the bug. When trying to paste the image into a Word document, you see nothing. Pressing CTRL and choosing “Picture” shows the image. My guess: the metadata is incorrect.

Can you add my text into that ticket, as I don’t have access to it? It is not a problem of copying something from a browser, it is a problem with wrong metadata.



I don’t think that’s the only issue. I’m using 5.5.0 on macos and it’s not possible to move in images from other sources, i.e. browser → mattermost, and it’s not possible to copy & paste, “Paste” shows inside the mattermost message field, but it never actually pastes anything.

Using MM Community Server 9.0

Copy pasting images from outside MM or even within MM channels/threads stopped working after upgrading from 7.x to Mattermost Version: 8.1.2

This is restricting all our users greatly, and even after months we have not seen any update on this issue.

This is now fixed in recent v8.1.4 dot release and for upcoming v9.2.0 release.
