Windows 7: Adobe reader 9

23 Mar 2010   #1

windows 7 Home Premium 32bit.
Adobe reader 9

I d/l a book from a website, using Adobe reader9.
I would like to copy & paste sections/paragraphs from the book, but adobe won't allow it.
Am I doing something wrong, or this just the way it is?
Do I have any other options?

Hi skostro,

That depends on the decision made by the book publisher. If they decide to allow copying and pasting from the ebook then you can, but if not, then there is nothing you can do. Sorry.

Just out of curiosity, what is the book and website? PM me with this if you do not wish it to be made public.

Use the snipping tool to just get what you want. It saves it in a graphic though which is not text editable

Adobe Reader 9.3
I've noticed that when I click on a pdf file or view its properties, it displays that it opens with Adobe Reader 9.2. However, I updated from 9.2 to 9.3 a while back. The files open with no problems and 'Programs and Features' shows that 9.3 is installed. Does this occur with anybody else? ...
