Is any Safari user able to successfully "paste" an image into a Confluence page?

Jack Brickey Community Champion Jun 07, 2017

This seems to be a long standing issue (CONFSERVER-26011) since as early as 2012. It is very frustrating as it allows me to paste it in and appears fine when in edit mode but once you publish it shows as broken image. So I use Firefox to paste images and safari for the rest of my work. Sure I could just switch to Firefox or Chrome for all my browser work but there are good reasons why I don't. 

Has anyone had success with Safari in this regard?

hmmm... using Safari version 9.1.3 and Confluence Server 5.8.5 it works fine here with drag&drop

Steffi, thanks for sharing your experience. It may be compatability issue w/ my version of Safari (10.1.2) and Cloud Confluence. I may attempt to downgrade Safari.

For what it's worth I just did a drag and drop of a .jpeg on Confluence Cloud and Safari Version 10.1 (12603.

more info for future frustrated searchers...

I am running Safari 10.1.2 (12603.3.3) on OS 10.12.6 Beta (16G12b). So I simply chaulked this up to me living dangerously on the edge of life.


I had another Safari user in my org test this and they were using plain old boring 10.1.1 (12603.2.4) on macOS 10.12.5 (16F73) and they see the same issue. I expect it is an incompatability with whatever version of JIRA is loaded in my cloud instance. 

Such is the life of living in a multi-browser, cloud enabled world. :-)

Does not work on Safari Version 11.0.3 (13604.5.6) and Confluence Server 6.1.2. 

Try upgrading Confluence?

There has long be an issue with Safari and its ability to paste images (discussion on stack exchange); however, it looks like Safari 11.1+ now works with Confluence Cloud and Confluence Server (6.9.0+).
