Why would I want this to happen when I paste a file? On a Mac, I Cmd+C a file from my desktop, and Cmd+V it into my document, and this preview icon shows up instead of the actual image. We must get this changed to paste the actual graphic. Seriously...what could the use case EVER BE for this icon to show up?
