paste a mac screenshot into a document

I have taken a screenshot (see attached) on a mac running Mavericks. When I try to paste it into an Apple Mail document, it shows up only as an icon, not as the picture.

It seems to me that I used to be able to paste jpegs in as pictures, not just icons.

Any ideas?

Thanks
Mark

You should be able to just drag-and-drop it into the message. Maybe the problem is that the format is not set to rich text. You change that via Format>Make Rich Text. Regards, Joe

You can also keep a screenshot in memory. instead of cmd-4 use cmd-shift-4. You can then past it into any program

Joe, PeterLbk,

Neither of those seem to work. I just get the icon in the mail document area, not the actual picture.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I just tested it on a mavericks mail client. I can't see any changes to be made in preferences. What version of Mavericks do you use? Mine is 10.9 (didn't update to 10.9.1 yet)

Mark,
Are you sure that Format is set to Make Rich Text? Regards, Joe

Quite Mail.

Open Terminal and copy and paste the following line then hit return:

defaults write com.apple.mail DisableInlineAttachmentViewing -bool false

strung,

That did the trick. It seems that other Mac users don't have this problem. Do you know what happened?

Someone at some point must have had entered:

defaults write com.apple.mail DisableInlineAttachmentViewing -bool true

as a terminal command to prevent Mail from using inline graphics. Possibly they were trying to fix a problem with PC Outlook users having problems with Mac inline jpegs.

Hi karnac2020,
It sounds as if strung's solution did it for you. If not, please post what problems still persist; if so, please close the question and award the points. Thanks, Joe
