Copying an image from a Confluence (v6.13.7) page and pasting to a Word 2016 document just gives an empty image bounding box. This works normally with images from other websites.
Word's 'Protected View' settings are all disabled, as per the Confluence help topic (https://confluence.atlassian.com/confkb/unable-to-copy-paste-image-from-confluence-to-outlook-or-word-655196184.html).
Anyone got any ideas..?
This is a behavior I also have experienced. My workaround is to paste the picture into "Paint"-program (the one included in all windows OS:s) and then copy it from paint and into word. In that way it works. This is not a great solution, but it is the best i've found.
The same goes for inserting images to confluence aswell.
Hope this can help you until it is fixed!
Good luck with your Atlassian endeavours!
For me it works to right click a image in confluence and press copy.
Open word and paste it in. After you paste it, the symbol below should appear.
Click on it and choose picture/image (the last option for me).
Hope that solves your issue :-)
Thats weird. I'm using word through office365 so it might be that we have different versions. My best guess is to click CTRL + ALT + V when you paste the image into word and then choose bitmap/png/jpeg depending on what options you get.
If that doesn't work. I would recommend to follow the steps described by @Gustav L'Estrade
It shouldnt be dependent on what word version you have even though it's a bit more annoying to do. :-)
Maybe this issue isnt confluence's fault, seems to be a Word-related issue
What i felt best is to click on 3 dots on the right side of the page and download the diagrams and pictures as an attachment with better quality images instead. thanks.
