To select introductory or “live text” passages for copying into other applications with Adobe Reader or Acrobat version 7.0 or 6.0, use the Select tool from the toolbar (or choose “Select” from the “Tools” --> “Basic” menu). (In Acrobat 5.0, use the Text Select tool from the toolbar.) Click once on a word to select it, and drag to select a range of text. As you select live text you may notice that it does not always align perfectly with the image of the original book. This is because it is not always possible for Acrobat to perfectly imitate the type positioning of the original. Text copied from Octavo documents is subject to limitations of copyright as applicable.
To select part of an image, choose the Select or Snapshot tool from Acrobat’s toolbar (or choose “Select” or “Snapshot” from the “Tools” --> “Basic” menu). You may then click and drag out a rectangular area you would like to copy. (In Acrobat 5.0, use the Graphics Select tool from the toolbar.) You can copy whole or partial pages onto your computer’s clipboard for pasting into other applications. The results will vary depending on the applications you paste into, as well as the resolution of the PDF view from which you are copying. Please note that this functionality is intended for nonprofessional uses, such as illustrating a homework project — for commercial or institutional projects it is necessary to request a license to republish Octavo content.
Because Octavo Editions contain large amounts of digital information, printing can take a significant length of time. When possible, print in black and white for faster results. Octavo content is subject to copyright restrictions, and permission must be requested for commercial or institutional use.
