How can I paste an image into a task?

In the 21th century, CMD+V is not for just texts.

I regularly need to take a screenshot and add it to my tasks.

Current workflow (killer):

  • Take a screenshot
  • Save it as a file
  • Go to attachments/upload in meistertask
  • Choose the image file to attach
  • Delete the file from local after attaching

Better way

  • Take a screenshot to clipboard (CMD+CTRL+shiift+3 or 4)
  • CMD+V attaches the image in task detail view

    Hi @Sanan and welcome to the community! 👋

    I allready tried to add a screen shot to a task. And it worked perfect.

    1. Made a screenshot

    2. Opened the task and pressed Ctrl. + V and it added the screenshot as an attachment.

    I use Google Chrome. Which browser do you use?

    Best, Samuel
