Can't copy and paste thumbnails to Microsoft documents

  1. Sep 21, 2014 #1
    Hi all,

    Here is a recent issue I came across. In the posts below, I cannot Control-A (select all), Control-C (copy) and then Control-V (paste) into a Microsoft word or powerpoint document. The images in question are the spacetime diagram thumbnails relevant to each post.

    The tedious way to do this is to "save picture as", of which you can only choose png or bitmap, re-open the image in pain, save it as JPEG or GIF and from there transport the image to Microsoft office programs. When time permits, best add that images can also be saved as JPEG or GIF.

    The computer I am using runs on Microsoft Windows 8.1

    Can you right click and copy the image then?

    Yes. I guess that's it. I'm a creature of habit. Yes, right-click, select "copy" does the job. Sorry I didn't try that first.
