Recently Adobe updated my Acrobat to 10.1.2.45. Now I'm unable to past images from clipboard into a pdf document. For example, using another windows program I might copy an image to the Windows clipboard, open up a pdf document, and click on the Edit menu expecting to be able to select Paste and paste the image from the windows clipboard onto a page in the PDF document. However, Paste is faded out in the Edit menu and is unselectable. I was doing this about 10 times a day and now that feature is unavailable to me. CTL-V also does not work.
this is a new Acrobat X feature…
Thanks for the tip. It's not what I'm looking for but good to know if I need to insert an already existing image. However, I need to be able to paste from the windows clip board. I noticed that it is sometimes possible and other times it is not. I can't figure out why it isn't consistent.
Thanks for reporting the issue, we have been able to get a consistent way to reproduce the problem and are working on a fix.
Meanwhile there is a workaround which you might find helpful:
Before you paste, just open the comments panel on the right and close it. You need to do this just once per Reader session,
Not sure if you have had a resolution.
This might work for you. After you copied the image to clipboard, go to acrobat document and select toos on the menu bar --> Comments & mark up --> Stamps --> paste clipboard image as stamp tool. Then you click on the place you want to paste your clipboard image. You can also resize it to the size you want.
Hope this could help,
Thanks very much for your idea but it wasn’t what I was looking for.
Actually, I stumbled on the solution. The problem is that you cannot paste from the clipboard when you have the thumbnails side panel open. All I needed to do was close that side panel and the pasting worked.
By the way, I don’t see how to post this solution to the discussion for others to see. If you know how to do it, please do.
