7.0 just let me paste from a PDF!

Some pdf's are just that.  An image of a page, so it would probably only
work for some pdfs.  However, if you can get an entire page showing on
screen appearing as you like it, you might be able to set up a hotkey for
"import snapshot" with no other arguments, at which point you get a
crosshair cursor and can drag around the pdf page and end up with an image
that way.

Probably not the best method but it does work.
