And the Tap to copy link when pasted, doesn't embed. That's maybe because of Google (or Ecosia, which uses Google's search stuff). I guess you'd have to copy the link, paste it into a tab, then go through the process again, on that tab's image, and then paste the link into VT. That's bobbins! Does it do the same if you use Bing or DuckDuckgo?

Just tried searching an image on DuckDuckgo and it's the same result

This is my attempt to link a Kenneth using the button I always used to use and now have to click 4 times to get through instead of once. 

Use "paste without formatting" or "paste as plain text" when you paste. You are pasting an HTML link to the image instead of just the URL.

And ask for help with "site issues" in the forum called "site issues".

It's not just this site, I've had it on various sites.

I see. Did pasting properly fix it?

That is still formatted. What options do you get when pasting? Long press in the editor when you reply and look for one of those options..

These are my paste options.

I don't get those options. I wonder if this is because I've changed to SwiftKey.  I'll try Samsung keyboard

Same paste options.

I'm at a loss. My screenshot is from my phone running Android 11 using Chrome and Gboard. No special options. My buffer contained some plain text from a text message.

OK thanks.  I'll just hope it somehow fixes itself. 

I have tried turning it off and on again 😉
