I have two Google docs. In one I have an image. I want to copy that image to the other Google doc. I know it sounds surprising and ridiculous, but I have no problem copy and pasting from word or anything else into a Google doc, but surprisingly, I cannot do the same from a Google doc. Unless there is some simple thing I am overlooking.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Have you tried copying the image to the web clipboard inside Drive instead of using regular copy and paste? – Christopher Harwood May 5 '13 at 17:52
Yes, and it does not work. The paste yields nothing. – Daniel Williams May 6 '13 at 18:32
The web clipboard saves a series of "clips" that you access via the submenu. When you copy an item to the web clipboard and then go to the Web Clipboard menu item, what shows up on the submenu? (I might not be much help as I tested regular copy and paste and that worked just fine for me, as did the web clipboard approach.) – Christopher Harwood May 6 '13 at 20:15
