Also can confirm on the Mac, although I’m curious whether this also happens on Windows.

Should be important to note that this not only applies just to screenshots, but also to all pasted images in the clipboard, such as those from the web.

As a workaround for screenshots, you should be able to take a normal screenshot command+shift+3/4 and drag the preview in the lower-left corner into the Anytype window.

I have the exact same problem on MacOS 12.6.

I can’t paste any screenshot into AnyType like I can do on Notion etc.

Please update to the 0.29.0 and if the Issue still persists add the tool and filetype if not already written.
It works fine with the copied screenshots from this topic and the native Gnome screenshot tool on my Linux machine.

I just updated to 0.29.0 and it seems that the problem has been solved. :+1:
