I often find my self wanting to copy an image (not the url, but the image) and 'paste' it into an answer.

Here's what I mean by copy:

"copy image" highlighted in right-click menu

To do this I love to use the Stack Exchange keyboard shortcuts.

  1. ctrl+g to open 'Graphics' pop up
  2. ctrl+v to paste from clipboard
  3. enter to Confirm!....wait no. Where's the focus?

Here's what Step 3 looks like:

Step three

Go try it, it's not as smooth as it could be. I've got to touch my mouse!

Could we put the focus on the 'confirm' button, after pasting a raw image?

Not sure if Bug or Feature so tagging as both.

  • I'm on mobile, so can't check, but would a "Tab" work? Or is there no focus?

    Focus is not required actually, client side code can easily detect ENTER key press and act accordingly. :) Commented Mar 25, 2015 at 11:40
  • This has since been fixed, I'm just looking to see if there was a good dupe target? Commented Dec 11, 2021 at 17:55
