    Would be nice if someone knows a solution to the following:

    I find that right-click-copy on a picture from e.g. the Finder followed by a "paste" into MS Office (both 2008 and 2011) does not work at all.
    I can drag-and-drop, I can do "insert-picture...".
    Strangely enough, MS Office on Windows (at work) has no problem with this.

    Is there a way to get this working? Is it a setting in MacOS Lion? Can it be solved within Office:Mac?

    My parents (70+) would love to have that functionality. They just moved to Mac and I would like to keep the change as simple as possible.

    Double-click the pic in Finder to open it in Preview, then Command-C to copy and then click on your Office document and Command-V to paste the pic.
