If I have to paste from pdf's, which I do quite often, I use xpdf.

are you talking about text, or image?

Text only I'm afraid :-(

I've been away for several days and all I have of this entire string is this message so if this has been covered, or is irrelevant to the OP's question......just hit delete.

cutting and pasting from a pdf - both text and image - is fairly easy using the tools/utils from xpdf.

pdfimages - will dump all the graphics contained in the pdf, then you can put them wherever you like. pdftoppm - will dump each selected page as a graphic(ppm) - convert/crop as desired.
pdftotext/pdftohtml - well... they do what they say.

The tools available with xpdf alone are a good reason for us to use/support xpdf rather than acroread. I for one would hate to have them disappear.
