Hi, is boring to screenshot something, save it in a file then drag & drop in the editor.

it will be faster to grab the screenshot than paste it directly in the editor.

I guess I should give up on this myself too. It's been 4 years since this was posted. Such a crucial function is missing. Mind boggling.

It is possible to paste images from the system clipboard:

  1. Make sure no elements are selected.
  2. Right-click on empty space in yEd's editor area to open the context menu.
  3. Choose "Paste from system clipboard".

Step one makes this a hard to find feature, but it is in there (and has been for four years).
