Enable images to be Copied from Pro Flow browser window
We store a large amount of customer service support information and often cut and paste from the text boxes into emails for clients. What would be great is if any images that have been embedded on the Pro Flow page could just be copied from the browser window and pasted into an email message. Currently it will not do this and just pastes a blank window. To get around this we have had to create an online shared folder with a copy of all images in it for pasting into emails - this seems to be a backward step a we are trying to use Pro Flow to avoid this.
This is great feedback for us, thank you for taking the time to suggest it!
We will certainly add this request into our development planning conversations and let you know if we are able to add some functionality here.
I'm also trying to think if there is a good workaround. Here are two that I thought of off the top of my head:
1. Use Jing (amazing free screengrab tool) to very quickly grab the image and in the settings, preset it to dump the image to your desktop. In 3 clicks, and one mouse drag, the image could be on the desktop. Likely your shared folder trick is very close to this in effort though.
2. What system are you using for email? If you do have a local client (like outlook), you can do things like email templates (OFT files). Here is an article that tells you how to create them: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Create-an-email-message-template-43ec7142-4dd0-4351-8727-bd0977b6b2d1 and here is an example one that I created with images in it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/a1h3yqpnptegohl/Outlook%20Email%20Template%20with%20Image.oft?dl=0
Let me know what email system you use and I'll put some more thought into this.
PS - Another cool email trick is just putting a robust mailto link in your ProcedureFlow shape box. You can use the a mailto URL builder like this:
http://www.cha4mot.com/t_mailto.html and then paste the URL right into your link in ProcedureFlow. This is not going to solve your image problem, but like I did above, you could create an image link to your repository and just put the link to the image in your email. Not ideal, but it's another option.
