    Hi JotForm-Team

    Is it possible, to insert an Screenshot in a form? We use a Tool (Snipping Tool) with you can make a screenshot of a part of screen and insert in a mail, word or whatever.

    I tried with the long Text-Field an in IE it works sometimes and in Chrome not. We use only Chrome for working.


    Thanks for help

    If I understand your question correctly, you want to add an screenshot/image in form. Is that correct?

    You can add "Image" field in form and upload the desire image. Here are the steps you need to follow:

    #1. Take snipping tool to take a screenshot.

    #2. Open any image editor like MS paint, paste the screenshot in the editor and save it.

    #3. Add "Image" field in form and select the image you just saved. Please check the screenshot below:


    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you meant to ask something else.

    Hi

    Thanks for your answer. I try to explain different. Is it possible for an user of a form that he can insert a screenshot without saving the picture? Like copy - paste.

    Unfortunately it is currently not possible to paste the image directly in form or any form fields/widget. The screenshot needs to be first saved and uploaded. The only option is to add file upload field in form and then as used to select the screenshot image file to upload.

    Thanks for your answer

    We created an form which we try out to insert a screenshot. Then, we tried to insert screenshot in a long Text field, once in IE and also in Chrome. In IE, it worked, in Chrome not. We use only Chrome so do you see also a possibility that it would work in Chrome?

    Form is https://form.jotformeu.com/72683910919365

    I did test your form and I see what you mean. I did test it in my own form and I was able to paste the screenshot in the "Long Text Entry" field using IE & Firefox browser. When I tested it in Chrome browser, it does not seems to work. 

    Let me forward this issue to our backend team. Though we cannot provide an ETA on this but we will get back to you as soon as we have any update from them.
