The Launchpad answers system does not support adding pictures.
You have to upload the image to an image hosting site of your choice and paste a link to that image in your Launchpad question document.

Hi Manfred

thanks for your fast reply.

> The Launchpad answers system does not support adding pictures.

I know!

> You have to upload the image to an image hosting site

No, I don't have to because of security reasons and because of
Launchpad now that problem (only one of a lot) for a very long time but
didn't changed something.

You as a project maintainer can give more pressure in it or change the
platform (e.g. GitLab).

Maybe this mail works? ;)

On the screenshot you see two terminal windows in the background. The
left is terminator the right is "Konsole" (KDE 4). Both of them use the
font "Hack" in 10pts.

But you can see they don't display the "vertical line" character the
same way. Terminator has a little space between them. But the python3
code producing this is exactly the same.

What is behind that behaviour?

kind regards
Christian

1. I am not a project maintainer - neither for Launchpad, nor for Terminator.

2. Attaching screen shots to the e-mail for Launchpad answers does not work either.

The only possibility that you have is uploading the image to an image hosting site or eventually reporting the problem as bug. The bug area on Launchpad does allow files to be uploaded.

The explanation and workarounds are provideed in the linked bug report.

Can you help with this problem?
