Select and copy text

You can copy words, lines, or columns of text from a PDF.

  1. Using the Select tool , do any of the following:
    • Drag across text.

    • Double-click or triple-click to select a word or a line of text.

  2. Move the pointer over the icon that appears next to the selected text, and then choose an option from the menu.

If you cannot select text, it may be part of an image or from a scanned document.
