I guess you can't just drag and drop an image from the desktop onto an open file. Last night I tried it, and by all appearances it LOOKS like it's going to be added to my document because the cursor changes to a big green plus. But what actually happens is Publisher opens the image as a new document. This is completely unexpected and not even how macOS works. Drag and drop onto the app icon means open the file. Drag and drop onto an open document means you're adding it to the open document. Perhaps it might make sense in Photo, but not in Publisher.

Unless I'm doing something wrong, the behaviour should be changed: drag & drop = place image in open file.

I'm curious why they have this behaviour. We will often drag an image to the pasteboard before placing it properly. It seems totally counter-intuitive and I can't think of any other application that does this.
