It would be nice to paste raster images to FormZ. Procedure could generate billboard object.

 

I am using Mischief sketch app with Wacom Cintiq 27 with transparent window over FormZ. You can make quick sketches over projection views. I can take screenshot of the picture and paste it to Archicad - and yes it is enough sharp image. Same very fast method would be cool with FormZ.

AC, 

 

Is the Billboard tool or the Reference Plane Underlay not working for you?

Hi

Billboard and Reference Plane Underlay are great methods to add external raster images. Drag and Drop or copy paste from different app (without dialog boxes) would be even faster and fluent.

Hi AC, 

 

We can look into adding this in the future.  

 

However, when copy/paste into formZ (or dragging and dropping) there would have to be some dialogue for placement or scale of these pasted/dropped raster images.  Or at the very least if we at first didn't immediately include them, another user would likely ask for this kind of support, thus having (another) 2-3 click process for adding raster images to a project.
