Windows 7: Can't scan window to capture text.

19 Nov 2011   #11


By the way, here's another work-around for those with the same problem:

Starting at the bottom of the text to be copied, highlight text and scroll upward as far as you can. If/when screen stops scrolling, while text is still highlighted, keep the left-mouse button depressed and then, bump the top of the screen with the cursor several times to manually force the screen to keep scrolling. You may have to do this several times, but it usually works after a few cursor bumps.

you could use a "print friendly" bookmarklet to select the text you want without the images
