    Question Print Screen Cannot Paste

    When I use Outlook, I can do a Alt + Prt/Sc (print screen) and paste into the emails. With Zimbra I cannot do that. I've tried several times without any luck. This is quite important for us to use at work. We are just testing the Zimbra Desktop right now.

    Any thoughts on this?

    Thanks,
    Blueyeitln

    Zimbra Desktop does not support pasting image into email.

    However you can always use a simple app like "ScreenShot2File" (ScreenShot2File - Free software downloads and reviews - CNET Download.com), or "Screenshot Utility" (Screenshot Utility - Free software downloads and reviews - CNET Download.com) to save a screenshot with single key combo. Then just drag-n-drop the saved image to zimbra desktop compose windows.

    On Vista, you can also use the "Snipping Tool" to capture screenshots.

    The problem with that is, you have to pay for it after 20 uses. Zimbra needs to show users its all that Outlook is and more. If we have to pay for attachments to a program that should be running head to head with Outlook, then its still behind them. I'm all for the open source so, we'll just have to wait or just stick with Microsoft.

    Thanks anyway,

    there are open source free screen capturers. like this one, if you have java installed, all you have to do is double-clicking the jar file, you will have a screenshot in c:\temp.

    Is this sort of thing still an issue? I've got a couple users that would like to be able to paste screen shots directly into the body of a message as opposed to having to make an attachment. They're using the Zimbra webmail interface.

    I'm not sure if this is still a problem. I decided to ditch Zimbra and went with Mozilla Thunderbird. You have to add a few things, which are all right there on their website and its free. The copy and paste works in there beautifully. Plus, it doens't take time to load up like Zimbra.

    You just download:
    Thunderbird - Email
    Lightning - Calendar
    Any other add-ons you want (including skins)

    Happy Hunting.
