      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      It's excellent to be able to copy and paste documents, or drag and drop, from the Windows desktop into the Confluence editor.

      It would be even better if I could copy (or drag) an attachment from a mail in my MS Outlook 2010 and paste it directly into Confluence.

      At the moment I have to copy/drag to the desktop then copy/drag to confluence editor.

      Workaround (Chrome)

      1. The current behavior of Drag and Drop seems to move the emails over to Confluence, deleting it from Outlook.
      2. For Chrome, we can workaround the issue by using the Javascript below in Confluence.
        • <script type="text/javascript">
          $(document.body).on('dragover', function (e) {
          e.originalEvent.dataTransfer.dropEffect = 'copy';
          });
          </script>
