When my default pdf reader is set to SumatraPDF, I can’t paste the contents of a pdf into MS office applications (Word). It does work if my default reader is set to Adobe reader.
All methods I have tried fail: dragging the file from explorer into word, insert -> object -> pdf. Using Adobe reader I can insert the contents of a pdf as a vector image in word. Using SumatraPDF, the file only shows up as an icon.
Clearly Word is using some feature of Adobe reader to insert the file. Is there a way I can accomplish the same if my default reader is SumatraPDF? I don’t want to give that up.
