Insert longs strings into Node Description almost crashes Knime


due to my clumsiness and pure chance, I had a screenshot in the clipboard while editing the node description, I pasted the screenshot which got converted to it’s base64 representation.

That almost crashed Knime.

Maybe an idea to put in some safety measures to prevent stupidity paired with bad luck?


Something similar is known to KNIME.

Keep an eye out for AP-20751 (not populating clipboard in case of copying a node/component) in the changelog :wink:
