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)?

Pls can you fix this soon? It makes Sharepoint much more easy to use and now its som bad you must save the Picture on your compurer first then when upload to the RTF field the Picture it self gets saved into i Picture library as well as in the field.
Copy and past should work and I do not understand why its not.
Please enable this feature. I want to use SP online as a Knowledge Base instead of Confluence which does have this feature.
Especially useful for documenting system issues and accurately describing the issue.
Even it should considered a bug cause you can copy paste without errors or warnings and the space occupied by the image is reserved, even you got the camera icon tell you it have a picture

This is a very simple and basic function but very important and I was just so surprised it did not work in SharePoint online. Why? We have a solution in Lotus today and will go over to SharePoint online but I do see more and more functions (or mostly lack of functionality) that does not work as we expected. Pls fix this soon!
I agree that this is a very important feature, currently we frequently save screenshots to image files and attach them to list items in our on-prem 2010 environment. Native copy and paste of screenshots from the clipboard into a muti-line text field in SharePoint is a critical feature.
OneNote Online and Word Online now have this ability, please add the same functionality to SharePoint.

This would make pages and wikis far more user friendly, and would encourage more content into this format.
Wordpress has this functionality with it's Image Elevator plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/image-elevator/. The user simply has to paste an image from the clipboard into a rich text editor. The image can be correctly sized before automatically being saved.
Applying this to SharePoint, it could work by having the option to define which library the images are saved to (ensuring the user has relevant permissions of course), what the allowed image sizes are, and possibly even a naming convention for the saved image files?
