Colors are altered when copy/paste from PlantUML

asked Sep 5, 2018 in Question / help by anonymous
I used to make copy/paste of  a PlantUML diagram from Eclipse to Word under Widows 7.

Since I migrated to Windows 10 copy/paste is still working but colours are altered.

Note: if you export to a file the colours are not altered.

I am using Eclipse Oxygen.2 Release (4.7.2) and PlantUML plugin 1.1.19. Do you know how to solve this issue?

I know it is not what you expect but I suggest you ask the maintainer of the Eclipse Plugin. However, from your question I somehow guess you are copy and pasting a svg file? If so, you can save yourself time and you won't need to open a ticket against the PlantUML Plugin. Please have a read here at Microsoft:

IMHO: One work-around could be to work with png instead of svg.

Thank-you very much for this quick answer.
I see that this microsoft issue is existing for several years..
What I can say is that it was working at a moment on my PC with windows 10 and office365.
Unfortunately I had to reinstall everything and from this date it does work anymore :(.
