That must be using something other than the standard X11 clipboard
copy/paste mechnism.  You shouldn't have to "right click copy", and
many of the apps I paste into don't even have a "right click paste".

It sounds like evince has abandoned the trie-and true X11 clipboard
functionality that people have been using for 30 years.
