In forum posts you click on the insert image icon and then you can either browse for you pic or type in the URL. When I am in a conversation, I click on the image icon and all it will let me do is type in the URL. How can I browse for pics in a conversation?

Ive only used/clicked on the box at the bottom left , the paperclip pic & 'Attach files' to upload a pic stored on my cell or comp. If thats what your're asking ?

No, what you're talking about, is what you do in a thread. He's talking about a conversation (DM?). I noticed the same thing when I was in a conversation. It doesn't let you browse/attach a picture like in a thread. I don't know the answer to his, JJTJ2, question.

Which OS/browser are you using? I'm on Mac Catalina with Safari, and I got a drag and drop box when inserting an image in a conversation.

I'll admit I'm confused. Conversations have the same editing interface as threads. Are you guys not seeing the same editing options?

I've tried a few different times, on a few different machines, and same result. Cannot insert an image into a Conversation. You can only link a URL.

Nope. Like right now, under the reply box, is a box that says "attach files". Conversations have no such feature.

I just figured it was because I was a luddite. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that can't get pics into conversations.
