I see that no improvement was made in TB11 drag & drop a Notes image over to the desktop. The TB10 workaround was to Open Thought Folder and drag the .png or .jpg file. See screen shot of the image file.

However, I now see in the new Notes editor image files are there but a Notes.md file pointing to another location where I presume the image file is stored. See second screen shot.

Please advise what is the workaround process we should use in TB11.

Thx,
Gary

Thought you might be interested to know we are discussing this thread over here😉

Also, are you working on a Mac?

Thanks for the pointer. I did a search for the issue and nothing came up.

Yes, working on a Mac.

Thanks for confirming. The discussion was very recent -- created after you posted your original question.🙂

The ideal solution is to be able to drag&drop straight from Notes. If the old workaround no longer works because TB11 changed the file structure, I can simply do a Mac screenshot capture so it’s not a showstopper. What is a showstopper is images in Notes disappearing. I thought this problem was put to bed. So confident that I updated my TB review on the iOS Apple Store.

The image you are looking for should be in a .data/md-images folder in this same directory.  Is it possible that you have folders that start with a dot as hidden directories?

Well, that was a 'who'dofthunkit'!  I can access the image files now.

See attached if you don't know how to see hidden directories on a Mac.

Is the image drag & drop feature on the "really nice to have" list?

Thx,

Gary

It had not occurred to me to look in the thought folder for the images - not sure why.  I guess I assumed that if any image didn't show up, it must not be there.  But it turns out the images are there, they are just not showing up in the Notes Field where they were showing up in the brain from which they were originally copied.
