Copy Text in PDF Files

Dear Computer Lady,

I love your newsletter! It has helped me out a lot! I was wondering if you could help me out? I know I have seen this somewhere before, but I can’t seem to find it now. 

How do you copy a page from adobe acrobat into word so that you can make changes or ad things to them?

Thanks so much.
Keep up the great newsletters!



Dear Susan,

Some Adobe Acrobat files will allow you to copy text while others are protected and will not.

If your file is not protected, you can click on the “Edit” menu and then click “Select All”. Then click on “Edit” and “Copy” to copy the text.

Or, you can click on the “Text Select” button on the toolbar (it has the capital letter T on the button) This will turn your cursor into an I beam shape instead of a hand shape and will allow you to highlight the text you want to copy.

If you really need to copy the text in a locked PDF file, there is a program available called, PDF Password Remover that will do the trick.
