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. Files cannot be pasted into documents in the same manner as images.

Resolution:

Ensure images are pasted into documents in the correct manner to resolve this issue. Images must be viewed in an image-editing application, then selected and copied into the clipboard. Microsoft Paint can be used for this purpose. alternatively, the free software GIMP can also be used. Follow the steps below:

1. Open the file in the image-editing application.

2. Press Ctrl+A (or click Select All in the Edit tab) to select the entire image.

3. Press Ctrl+C (or click Copy in the Edit tab).

4. Open PDF-XChange Viewer/PDF-XChange Editor.

5. Open the document into which you want to paste the image.

6. Right-click at the desired location and click Paste in the submenu.
