Unable to paste images from Flare output to Word

Postby Don Barwick on Wed Nov 27, 2019 7:27 am

I need to be able to copy the content of a page from a Flare HTML5 output, and paste that content into Word. When I do so, images in the content don't get pasted - I only get the text. I can copy individual images (using "Copy Image") and paste them, but I need to be able to copy text and multiple images together. I am able to copy text and images from other websites; does anyone know why this doesn't work with Flare output?

Seems to depend on the HTML behind those images. In my project, (Side-Nav, minimal extra formatting) I can copy a page over to Word and all of my images arrive with the text.
Just now, experimenting with the local weather forecasting site, I find that some images are copied with the bulk of the text and some are not. One difference is whether the image is also a link.

Looks like a good research project to figure out the specifics. Let us know what you find. :wink:

Thanks. I'll investigate some more; if I unearth anything useful, I'll add it here.
