Copy & paste graphics

In Windows, using Excel and Thunderbird, I had a really nifty feature I often use for work: I could copy and transparently paste elements as a screenshot into Thunderbird.

To be specific: I would by copy part of the spreadsheet (with incorporated graphics) directly into my messages, and I would simply paste a single screenshot image cotnaining the entire area I snipped, ie spreadsheed and graphics.

Now I've (happily :^)  ) migrated my work environment to Debian 4.0 and XFCE. Alas, I can't seem to be able to copy and paste graphics from one application to the other.

I have tried to copy and paste pure images across applications (example: copied an image from Firefox or from a file on Gimp into OO writer) but XFCE doesn't seem to like it - the image doesn't even get listed on the clipboard manager.

Am I missing something?

Re: Copy & paste graphics

No, the clipboard manager only handles text. So you can freely copy images between applications, but the clipboard manager won't save/hold them.
