Pasting an image in drafting?


Is there a way to just copy and paste an image into a drawing sheet?


I use one of the journals on the NX journaling site to grab an image to paste in office apps.

Is there a way to take this image in the clipboard and paste in onto a drawing sheet without having to save as a an image 1st then inserting it into the Drawing?

Pasting a JPG or other image file into a drawing is not supported. However, a slightly easier option than using the insert command is to drag and drop the image file from an explorer window into the drawing sheet.
