"From clipboard" button: fall back to interpreting clipboard data as path to image
|Reported by:||D Gowers||Owned by:||Thomas Bernard|
Though we can currently paste into the Filename field, this is not useful for pasting a path, as it strips all '/'.
Some way to load directly from a path would be helpful. The "From Clipboard" button seems like the logical place to put it, as pressing this button with a path on the clipboard currently just produces an error flash.
This would enable browsing through project files in a real image viewer (eg. sxiv) and easily loading them in grafx2.
Ideally, the case of 'exactly 2 paths on the clipboard' could also be handled (replacing both the current page and the spare page)

.. the image viewer I'm using (sxiv) doesn't support DnD, so any DnD would introduce an additional step of programmatic interaction with a file-manager (eg. SpaceFM) or other thing-that-can-generate-a-drag-event (eg. clipboard manager; although for example when I drag a path from CopyQ, grafx2 just says
Unhandled SelectNotify selection=XdndSelection).
I've explored other image viewers extensively. Some of them (eg. eog, gthumb) do support DnD, but lack other important features (eg. a thumbnail view; Upscaling of particularly small thumbnails; Customizable actions; Strong animation support). I'd guess that about 70% of viewers support DnD.

OK so we could modify "Paste" so when the "clipboard" does not contain an image but only text, it tries to interpret it as a path to image and open the image (or just the directory)

fixed for both X11 and Win32 :)
Ithink you can just drag and drop files on grafx2 to load them, sounds much simpler
