FEATURE REQUEST : Embed Images Into Source Code


Dear Users of IntelijIDEA, Happy Monday !

I posted a request for such a feature in April 25 2018 and someone pointed to some random issue and said it was under consideration (the issue tracker was dealing with an entirely different issue).

As I mentioned earlier another Java IDE does provide this feature (https://atom.io/packages/hydrogen)

Inserting images into the source code editor is important because we would like to document the code and have screenshots of output and graphs and other diagrams (which aid in code comprehension and re-orientation please).




any luck with that request?


btw, as ugly as it may seem, i ended up using ascii diagrams in the source code. check out http://asciiflow.com/


for simple state diagrams, for example, this approach is surprisingly convenient.
