Must have plugin!
But on Redmine 3.3.3 I had to create manually /public/plugin_assets/clipboard_image_paste folder and copy there folders from /plugins/clipboard_image_paste/assets to make it work properly.

Not sure if I will have problems later, but seems to be working on 3.3.2 for me.

Very useful plugin,
thank you Richard!
Please, make it compatible with Redmine 3.3

  by Ray Carnes 4 months ago

I'd love to get this working with 3.3.0.stable. I have v1.10 of the plugin but when I unzip and put the folder in plugins and restart, I get a 500 error (which goes away when I remove the folder and restart)

  by Tim Iskander 5 months ago

Awesome plugin... use it on a regular basis..
We upgraded RM to 3.3 and had to make sure we got v1.10 of the plugin (as the download links were pointing to v1.9, which is not compatible with RM 3.3)

when it supports 3.2.0 Redmine?

  by Dominik Ras over 1 year ago

Huge time saver. Perfect for copying notes from OneNote - you select text in OneNote and pasting to RedMine creates a sleek and clean image out of that.
