    I copy an image from a book in iBooks or a PDF in Print n Share on the iPad 3.

    If I paste in mail the image will paste. However, if I tap to paste it in a blank document in Pages the Insert dialogue pops up. A blank document in QuickOffice does nothing when I tap.

    If I copy an image from a PDF on Dropbox and paste in Pages the HTML is pasted. A paste in Mail shows the image. QuickOffice shows the HTML.

    How can I paste the image in an app other than Mail on the iPad 3? I would really like to be able to paste an image in Pages.


    Thanks,

    Mike

    I just tried this in Pages. Tap on an image in Safari and select copy. Tap in a blank document in Pages and select Paste and the image appeared and you can move, resize etc.
    Is this what you are trying to achieve?

    Yes, except I want to do it from a book in iBooks

    BTW, if the page in Safari is showing a PDF, when you copy and paste in pages, the HTML code is pasted. Do the same paste in Mail and the image shows instead of the HTML code.

    Also, I am puzzled as to why one cannot select/copy from a PDF in iBooks.

    You can take a screen shot of the image, which can then be cropped if required and added to the Pages doc using the add media function.

    I was hoping to find a more straightforward approach.
