Why can't I paste images into a PDF document in PDF-XChange Viewer or PDF-XChange Editor?

Question:

Why can't I paste images into a PDF document in PDF-XChange Viewer or PDF-XChange Editor?

Please note that a user asked this question on the Tracker Software forum. They copied the image file from their My Documents folder, but the Paste option was greyed out in the editing submenus. They wanted to know why this was the case and how they could resolve the issue.

Answer:

This happens when images are copied into the Windows clipboard as files instead of images, as files cannot be pasted into documents in the same manner as images.

Additionally, it is also possible that the document is locked. Information about how to resolve that issue is available here.

Resolution:

The best way to resolve this issue is simply to ensure that images are copied in the correct manner. Open images in an image-viewing application, then select them and copy them to the clipboard. Follow the steps details below:

1. Open the file in an image-viewing application.

2. Right-click the image, then click Copy in the shortcut menu.

3. Open the document into which you want to paste the image in PDF-XChange Editor/Viewer.

4. Right-click at the desired location and click Paste in the shortcut menu, or press (Ctrl+v), to Paste the image.
