Add an image from the Clipboard to a Work Item

Post by lbauer » Mon Apr 06, 2009 3:35 pm

Vault Professional has a feature to add an image from the clipboard, and edit the image. This is available in the GUI Client and the IDE -- Visual Studio or Eclipse (but not in the Web client).

You can see this in the Vault Pro Client under the View Menu->Browse Work Items. Open a bug and scroll to the bottom of the bug window. Click on Attachments. You have the option to Add File or Add From Clipboard. If you take a screen capture using the Windows Alt->Print Screen command, you can paste this into the Comments section. In the Image Preview, click on Edit, and the image is now in the image editor. Where you can crop it and draw/write notes on it.
