Copy a whole page of a PDF document
« on: September 01, 2011, 03:55:14 PM »
Dear Forum,

How can I copy part of a whole page inside a PDF document to the clipboard?

I am using Foxit Reader, and the snapshot tool only allows you to copy the part of the page which is viewed on the screen: You cannot scroll down!

Thanks!

If the content is protected, you can't/shouldn't do that at all.

Aside from any copywrite issues:

I use PDF-XChange Viewer and that has a select tool, in its tools section, it allows you to highlight text and copy it.

Quote from: extract from pdf file
MJ Registry Watcher is a simple registry, file and directory hooker/poller, that safeguards the most important startup files, registry keys and
values, and other more exotic registry locations commonly attacked by trojans. It has very low resource usage, and is set to poll every 30
seconds by default, although you can adjust this to anywhere between 0 and 9999. A configuration file stores all your settings for future use.
MJRW not only polls the system, but it also hooks it, so that most changes to keys, files and directories are reported instantaneously. Key
deletions are still caught by the polling loop though, since they cannot be hooked. Exactly which keys and files are protected can be completely
configured by the user, although the sets I supply with MJRW will cover most standard PCs.
To install it, extract the files with pathnames, and you'll have a self-contained .exe file with a small help text file, the keys and files lists, and a
couple of exclusion files in the MJRegWatcher directory. Create a shortcut to C:\MJRegWatcher\RegWatcher.exe and launch it. Then, use the
Options, Settings, Automatic Startup Options screen to install it either just for the current user, or for all users. From this screen, you can also
choose which key set to start it up with, or even uninstall it. Please note that under Vista, MJRW will need to be configured with
Administrator privilege to write to the registry. To do this, go to the RegWatcher.exe file in Explorer, right-click to Properties, and go to the
Compatibility tab. Check the admin box. Whenever the Vista PC is restarted, you will have to OK MJRW to start with admin rights. Unless you
disable UAC, the only way round this is to use the task scheduler to launch MJRW with administrator rights and set it to run at
log on.

I'm always cautious with links provided by Google. I prefer to rely on trusted friends here in the forum.

It worked like a charm!

Thanks!

You need some more friends, WOT, WebRep and don't forget the network and web shields. Noi forgetting Firefox and NoScript ;D

Then you can pretty much google your self to death.

I use NoScript, Firefox and Avast's shields.

WOT and WebRep did not always work well with NoScript on my system.

I use Sumatra pdf and it can copy text very nicely, try it, if you want to, of course.

NoScript should have zero impact on either WOT or the WebRep as they aren't scripts on the page, so there is something else in the mix.
