Open the document you are currently working on in one tab, and the document you wish to copy from in another. View both documents side by side. Using your mouse to middle-click a link opens that link in a new browser tab which may be dragged.
Open the PDF copy of the document you wish to copy from by previewing it and selecting the Pop-out option if available in your browser/on your device. This will display the PDF in a selectable text format (rather than image) which can be copied/pasted from.
