TIP 83: Reusing Images

You can reuse individual images from a document if permission is given by the document author. Begin by clicking the Select tool on the Basic toolbar. The Select tool automatically changes to an arrow when the pointer is held over an image. Then, click to select the image, which is highlighted. If you want only a portion of the image copied, drag a marquee with the Select tool.

Out of the Way, Please

If you are trying to select an image on a document that has overlying text, you could be in for some serious frustration unless you change one of the preferences. By default, the General Preferences include a setting to select text before images.

Choose Edit > Preferences > General (on a Mac, Acrobat > Preferences > General) and check select Images Before Text from the Select Tool Options pull-down list.
