Insert an Image from Another App

Want to insert Photos and Images into your script from another app?

Do you have all your location or research photos saved within another app, such as Dropbox? With Copy and Paste, you can easily insert these images into your script.

NOTE: Not all outside apps are compatible with Copy/Paste in this way.
Start in the other app, and tap and hold the image you wish to bring into Scriptation. A pop-up menu will appear. Tap on Copy to copy the image.

NOTE: Each outside app may have a slightly different pop up menu set-up and order.
Then, switch to the Scriptation app, and tap and hold the location in the script you wish to place the image. A pop-up menu will appear. Tap on Paste to place the image.

With the image placed, you can now Scale your image with the bounding box, Move its position by tapping and holding the image, or attach a Note to it. You can also Copy and Paste the image, change which layer the image is on by tapping Layers, or Delete it with the trash can icon.

TIP: For Industry Pro users, tapping Save will turn your image into a Saved Annotation for ongoing use.
