Fix pasting of images from clipboard to Mnemosyne

For example, if I press printscreen, or if I use a screen snipper tool, I'd like to be able to paste those images into Mnemosyne like I can with Anki. The current method of saving the image and inserting it from a dialog is far too slow.

    This feature is also what stops me from using Mnemosyne as my only SRS Flashcard App, it'd be nice to be able to drag MP3 files as well but I'm sure there is a separate request for that

    This is must-have. Pasting is so much quicker in many occasions, one of many reasons that made evernote so successful.

    This is THE most important missing feature for me. None of the images I learn are stored as image files on my computer already and I do not want to go through the hassle of creating, saving and storing them somewhere that they might get lost or deleted. As a result, I nearly never use images in my cards, even though I know they would be a much more sensible way to learn things a lot of the time.

    It will be much more effective, especially when inserting an image from a pdf (while I am reading)or google. I suggest both Ctrl+V support and grabbing image button

    Insertion of pictures with snipping tool only by the command "Strg + c,v" would be much more effectiv! Would be a great simplification!

    You're missing the point - when you're creating your own images (printscreen, open up an image editor, paste) and saving them (naming them, choosing a logical place to put them, waiting) can take ages to do, especially with lots of pictures. And only after that there's the ctrl-i part.

    IMO, the process of adding an Image is very fast:
    1. Ctrl_I
    2.Click on the image name ( which one can position at the END of the list - if the list is sorted by Date; you sort it just ONCE and Mnemosyne remembers the order.).

    There are more 'time sucking' operations than this one.
