This is likely tough to do, but it would be really slick to be able to paste in an image from the clipboard.
Not a link to the image, bu the actual image. Would also be nice to be able to specify height and width for all images.
please, refer to the FAQ at the freemind home page.
By 'paste' what I meant was embed, my aplogies for not being more clear.
I presume you mean the FAQ question "How can I embed images into freemind?". I was aware of that process.
To acheive close to what I described, with this process one would have to save the clipboard image to a file and then make the reference from the map to the image.
If I send the map to somebody else I must also send them all the related files. An example of where this seems to be a problem is my installation of 0.7.1rc3 - when I look at the help "Examples of pictures..." none of the images are there - just the broken link image.
Perhaps an easy way to accomplish would be to store the map in a 'mar' file - map archieve. When a image file is pasted into a map, it is added to the mar and a reference built at the node.
Other types of media could be handled that way as well.
One might also consider if file drag-n-drop might give the option of direct link, or copy to MAR.
I find that the file references aren't quite what I would like. I have already mentioned the problem with sending the map to somebody else and missing referernced files. Also file references don't seem to behave the way I expect in the applet, and likewise , URL references don't behave in the applicaiton as I expect either.
me too, i'd like to 'paste' directly from clipboard an image...as we can do for the text.
An example of a URL reference that doesn't work as expected.
