ckgedit Image Drag and Drop with CKEditor 4.5.x

In Firefox (in Windows, Linux and OS X), it is possible to drag an image from the desktop into the paste tool and paste it into the editor. This works as well in Debian with Iceweasel, which is based on Mozilla. Simply open the paste tool, drag the image into the tool, and click OK.

Direct Insertion from Clipboard

With versions of ckgedit and ckgdoku dated June 23 1017 and later, using CTRL-V, or your system's equivalent, it is possible to insert images from the clipboard directly into the editor in most browsers. This requires a copy and paste.

Recent Browser Versions (2016 and later)

Paste tool no longer works. Use Ctrl-V (CMD-v) to paste directly into the editor window after copying image to the clipboard.

Earlier versions of CKEditor

In versions of CKEditor prior to 4.5.1, images can be dragged directly from the desktop into the editing window. The paste method described above for 4.5.1 works in these earlier versions as well.
