After updating to version 9.1 I am no longer able to put icons from images in macros. On both Sierra and Catalina.
I have the same problems under macOS Catalina and macOS Big Sur @peternlewis
It is no longer possible to insert external image files, whether using Darg & Drop or Copy & Paste.
Copy & Paste is possible for images already contained in the editor.
Ah yes. Just tried and same for me. I can copy and paste existing icons within Keyboard Maestro but not copy and paste or drag any new icons in. (Using KM 9.1 in Bug Sur.)
Using 10.11.6 (El Capitan), copy/pasting an image (a png and a jpg) from Preview to be a macro icon worked but drag and drop from the Finder did not.
Ok, it works in Sierra too.
On both Catalina and Big Sur, I can screen capture an area and then paste it in without issues.
So perhaps it depends on the image you are copying.
Yes, drag & drop is no longer supported (at least at this time).
I am able to copy and image (like in a web browser), and then paste into the Macro icon image well. Running Keyboard Maestro 9.1 on macOS 10.14.6 (Mojave).
Can someone explain how to actually use the copy/paste method to change a macro icon? I can't seem to understand how to do so from finder. the only thing that seems to work is copy/paste from a webpage..I assumed we can also copy paste from a local image right?
Yes, I've just double-checked and pasting from the clipboard does work and as @peternlewis says, drag and drop no longer works. Hopefully drag and drop will be re-enabled at some point as drag and drop was the way I was doing it.
Before I could just drag a .png file from the Finder into the Macro's Image Well. Now the .png has to be opened (for example in Preview) and then ⌘A to select all of it, then ⌘C to copy it, before ⌘V to paste into the Image Well of the Macro.
Actually, just thinking it would be pretty simple to make a Keyboard Maestro Macro to automate these steps... ︎
As in my previous post but in exact steps:
Open the image file in Preview
⌘A to select all of it
⌘C to copy it
Click on the current Icon of the Macro you want to change
⌘V to paste in the new Icon
Before, the .png could be dragged from the Finder directly into the Macro but as of now this is not working.
When I copy an image in my web browser I can copy and paste it. When I copy and paste the same image on the desktop, this happens:
Why so cumbersome @peternlewis? It worked wonderfully in the previous KM version.
