How do you cut copy and paste something from a pdf document and post it elsewhere guys, like you do with MS word. You know, control C and then control V!

I'm trying to paste a few questions from the past papers but dont know how as its in PDF?

Any ideas will be much appreciated!!

Well. First of all you have to select the text in pdf that you want to copy. For that you use the select button in menue at the menue bar. Its at top of the document and clearly says select. U press it first. Arrow would change to cursor. Now you select the text using mouse and then right click. U will get option of copying it to clipboard. Select it. Next you can paste it wherever you like by Ctr+V or just the paste command using right click.

There are 2 main versions of acrobat, one is reader and the other (I think editor) allows you to play around with text. Make sure you have the corect version. Its availible as free download.

P.S I suggest you use a better forum for this question. Try typing your question on google along with the word forum. There are bollions of geeks hungry to help!
