Fix if unable to paste from Snagit to Confluence

I recently discovered that my team mates, when editing Confluence documents, were able to copy/paste images from an image editor directly in to the open Confluence document.
What a time server!
When I tried doing that from my good old Snagit Editor, it just did not work.
Nothing happened in the Confluence editor when I pasted.
Now I have debugged this for a bit, and found the fix.
I am using Snagit 13.1.3 (build 7993).
The Confluence server is version 6.2.0.

The fix is simple.

  • Open the Snagit Editor
  • File --> Editor Preferences --> Outputs
  • Checkmark in "Disable image transparency on clipboard"
  • OK
