Copying images to GItlab repo issues from xubuntu clipboard....?

Possible bug. I seem to be able to intermittently be able to copy images from the printSrc function on my xubuntu hp stream laptop to issues on my gitlab repo.

Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.

When it works I use the printSrc function, choose ‘copy to clipboard’, then open a gitlab issue and paste. The image get’s rendered to something like …


and then renders find when I submit.

When it doesn’t work, the image gets added as …


and doesn’t render on the page.

Bug? Feature? What’s the story ?
