Enable the ability to paste images directly into multi-line text boxs instead of just URLs
Currently you need to paste a URL in a MLTB but if someone is looking to clip and paste a image from their PC, this become a pain. Can we please just paste directly into the MLTB?
As one person mentioned already, you can paste images into the text editor on modern pages and we’ll upload the image for you.
Is this strictly asking for that capability in lists with multi line text box (MLTB)?
Robert Sawyer commented
I should add, in classic and modern.
Robert Sawyer commented
Anywhere a MLTB can be added. Therefore any of the standard apps, including a custom list.

I've just tested the pasting of an offline image inside a TEXT web part on a modern page. The image, indeed, is pasted but NOT INSIDE the text web part. Instead, an IMAGE web part is inserted at the carret location and the initial TEXT web part is split in two seperate web parts.
Seems to me it is more like a "workaround" solution, while we all (I guess) expect to see the image inserted INSIDE the initial TEXT web part.
Anyone would like to react on this ?

As stated by others before, pasting images should ANYWHERE
-> either not be allowed when it does not work
-> or should just work if you paste it anywhere it is allowed to paste!
Also in classic MLTB.
It is just crazy now that the user can do a paste action, sees the images pasted among the text and have the image dissappear after saving (MLTB).
At the very least this should not look like it is working to the user only to fail when they save the text. I have all my text formatted the way I want, there is a picture being displayed. I save it and go look at the posting and see the picture has mysteriously disappeared.

Really need this implemented!!! Its 2019 and this feature is not available yet. Disappointed!

FYI SharePoint Modern pages Text web part allows you to paste an offline image. It automatically adds a Image web part and uploads the image for you above the text web part.
Really need this functionality too.
I've tried every field I can think of in O365 SharePoint custom lists option and none seem to let me paste a simple screenshot. Come on Microsoft, get with it on this.
What is the last status Microsoft??

How is this not a feature as yet? Microsoft please incorporate this asap.
very poor this isnt standard in 2018/2019.
please add this shortly.
Very frustrating when trying to do a simple copy paste. Users are complaining to us and asking for solutions. Any news here? I haven't seen any feedback from MS.
Wish I knew this wasn't working properly when I volunteered to map my company's processes.
Well played Microsoft.
With out this option , Knowledge base is useless. We have to put extra effort and time to save and upload the images. So we had to go for other solution.

At the time of this post:
Chrome: pastes nothing
IE & Firefox: paste the image but cannot save
Safari: worst of all, it pastes the image in a local blob URL, and can be saved and even viewed on the author's computer. But others will see a broken image icon.

My team would really benefit from being able to paste images straight out of clipboard into pager for documenting problems/solutions in a streamlined manner.
Here's hoping we'll see the feature sooner rather than later!

I know this an old thread, but I have implemented a simple workaround. If you notice, you can copy/paste an image from the clipboard quite easily, but it isn't preserved when you save the record. My solution is to strip the <img thus rendering it as a long string inside the <p> tag during PreSaveAction. Then I just add the <img back during document.ready and voila the image is back. it only takes a few lines of code in a SEWP. However, I concur with the prior comments that this should be OOTB capability.
This is a very easy to implement feature. It really should be default. Working with Wiki's is painful without the ability to paste screen shots.

Hello and I hope you are well. I second Ben's comment. We would love to consolidate our Confluence wiki into a SharePoint Online wiki but it is a hard sell for our user base since they are accustomed to the easy image copy/paste functionality in Confluence. Let me know if there is anything we can do to help move this feature forward. Thank you! -N
