Chapter 2. Acrobat Reader in Depth > Selecting Text and Graphics

Selecting Text and Graphics

Before you can do anything with text or graphics in a PDF document, you first need to know how to select them. Acrobat Reader offers two tools for selecting text and one for selecting graphics.

To select text using the Text Select tool:

1.
Choose the Text Select tool on the Basic Tools toolbar (Figure 2.6), or press V.

Figure 2.6. Click the Text Select button on the Basic Tools toolbar.


2.
Holding down the mouse button, drag the cursor over the text you want to select (Figure 2.7). Note that the Text Select tool selects entire words at once—there is no way to select just part of a word.

Figure 2.7. Using the Text Select tool, drag across the text you want to select.
