Are you using Jira Cloud or Jira Server?
If Jira Server, what version of Jira are you using?
In my testing of both current Jira Cloud and Jira Server 7.12.1, I am able to paste an image in my clipboard into the comment section of an issue. In Server, it appears inline immediately. In Cloud, I am prompted to use attach screenshot tool to upload the image, but immediately after doing so, my comment has the wiki-markup to display that image.
On both platforms it does require that an image be added as an attachment to the issue, but these issues can still display these images in the comments.
Is that a problem in your environment? I'm not sure I fully understand why this would be an issue. Could you explain in some more detail how this poses a problem?
I too find this frustrating e.g. I may have added a comment to our customer in the comments box but can't paste in the screenshot from Snagit at that point. It directs me straight to attachments so the comment is then lost. However you can paste an image into a comment in atlassian confluence. Would be good to be able to do this in jira too.
