Inserting images into notes

Tinderbox Icon

The manual is perhaps ambiguously worded about this (unintentionally so). Confusion arises because Finder is often the first application used to try out adding images to notes. You can't drag/drop from Finder as a copy/paste delivers just the filename to the target note. If you drag an image onto a view other than a Text window, you get a new note.

To add an image into a Text window you need to 'open' the image first. Drag a JPG onto Preview, select Copy (Cmd+C), switch to a open Tinderbox Note window and use either the Edit menu or Cmd+V to paste in the image. To paste a particular part of the text, set the cursor in the text window before pasting. Note the text window has no copy/paste options in it's Ctrl+click pop-up menu - in fact the one item shown doesn't do anything. If you drag from Safari, the image is the 'drop'. Indeed, drag/drop works from a number of apps so the outcome is app dependent - but simply dragging files from Finder is out.
