Google Docs uses a 'web clipboard' approach for cut and paste that works very well so long as the paste target is another Google doc. However, I don't know how to easily copy an image from the Google web clipboard to my local clipboard so that it can be pasted into a local document.
At this point, I have discovered two kludgey ways to do this:
- File->Download as a Microsoft Office formatted file, open the file, copy image to clipboard
- Capture screen area to clipboard with command+control+shift+4
Both have obvious workflow or quality cons. Is there a better way?
