Guess I have to show my ignorance, I have a lot of service manuals in pdf format which I can view using Adobe, my question is when I see a section that I want to copy say what is normally a copy and paste Abobe will not let me do that but tells me it copied it to the clipboard, where is the clipboard ? i can not find it and do not know where the copied seection went.

Thanks

Bob

It's invisible... think of it as a virtual clipboard... simply open Notepad, WordPad or any Word Processor (Word, WordPerfect etc) and use Ctrl-V to paste in your copied section.

The PDF could be locked (a pdf can be locked so you can't copy or print by the creator) OR the PDF could be a scanned image and not OCR (the pages were scanned as TIFF or JPG and then converted to PDF rather than scanned into a word processor and then converted to a PDF). Either way you are out of luck.
