You can save a selection as text from Impression Publisher (File-Save
selected text) and drag the box to a StrongED window, or to its iconbar

Impression also nominally supports the global clipboard (it did so long
before most other apps), but I find that trying to use it while StrongED
is running tends to lead to crashes in Impression - the implementation
doesn't play nicely with other software.

I just did a quick test with !Clipper running, and when I select and
copy text in Impression, it gets reported as SciCalc claiming the
clipboard...!   Not until I quit SciCalc do I get Impression Publisher
showing up as the owner; and not until then can I paste the text into
StrongED.   But clipboard transfer does work both ways, at least some of
the time.

Copy to clipboard in Impression, then paste into StrongED.   And vice
