Cannot insert images in new HTML messages

When composing a new HTML message there is a button labeled “insert/edit image”. When I click on that button I get a popup asking for “source” (among other things) but there is no way to create a path to the image that I can see. I am using Chrome 70 browser on Windows 7 OS. Thanks.

Thanks for your message.

To insert an image, first add it to the message by dragging and dropping it onto the message. It will then become available in the “Image list” drop-down in the “Insert/edit image” dialog box.

See for more details.

That works. Thank you!

This is very old but very relevant. I was close to submit a bug report as it is far from obvious. Maybe a hint in the pop-up would help?

@Geir, Edit: using the current build, there are 12 images (JPGs and PNGs) attached to the draft and none of them makes it to the list of images to choose from. A bug?


Github, Gmail or this forum use an image upload that allows to paste an image in the clipboard (typically a screenshot) which is something I do very often. This would be a great feature! (And draft-and-drop directly into the text.)
