Patricks finding looks very reasonable to me as well. If PDF is not offered for pasting this means that LyX dos not see any PDF on the clipboard. If you call LyX with lyx -dbg action in a terminal and look for "Found format" you should see whether it finds PDF or not. If that does not give any new insight you'd need to run LyX in a debugger. The place to look at would be GuiClipboard::hasGraphicsContents(). Georg
