Am I the only one who has had to devise a workaround to Drag & Drop images into TC? It just occurred to me that maybe I should check what others have found.
My situation is that I want to work with jpeg &/or gif files which can be photos, screen grabs etc. Using Insert|File/Picture/Object, the best I get is a reference to the file, but not the file as an image that I can overlay my work on.
I have a workaround that is crude, but if it takes crude to get the job done, then I can do crude
The workaround: By installing 602Suite (but not MS Office or other software that I've tried), something happens with file associations which means I am able to Drag & Drop files (jpeg & gif are the 2 I use mostly) from Windows Explorer windows into drawings, & they appear in the drawing beautifully. I'm then able to resize them etc. just like a TC object, however rotating is a bit more fiddly.
It's still a mystery to me why I can't do this with a fresh install of TC, & am prepared for someone to let me in on the secret of what I've been doing wrong.
I'd love to hear of others' experiences.
