Copy and paste image from Wiki to third party

Currently it is not possible to copy an image from Connections Wiki to any other application. In this special case a user wants to copy/paste an image from a Wiki to MS-Word. It does not work.
I was running a test with IC 6.0 CR4 and IC 6.0 CR5 which used textbox.io and CKEditor. We tried also the new Tiny MCE Editor. In any constellation copy/paste does not work.

    Hi,
    we investigated this together with Tiny to get to the bottom of it. In order to allow users to copy an image (with or without text flowing around it) from within the active editor window to another app, we would have to make significant changes to the security procedure around what app has access to server resources.
    When copying an image from within the editor, only the URL is copied and the other app (e.g. Word) would have to be granted access rights to the Connections server resource to pull that image. Given that there is a very simple work around, we will not implement this change.

    Work around:
    Instead of trying to copy the image while in the active edit session, close the editor and copy the image or image-and-text from the Wiki view and paste it into your app of choice (e.g. Word).

    This works well and should not put too much burden on the end user.
