How can I see the “live text” in my Octavo Edition?
Some Octavo Editions contain “live text” embedded behind the book images, which permits text searching within the book’s images using Adobe Acrobat or Reader’s Search feature. To determine whether a given Octavo Edition includes this feature, consult the feature list on the appropriate product page on this site, or check the Edition itself for “live text” instructions. Using the Search feature, enter a word or phrase; matching instances will appear in a linked list or directly on the book’s images. The hidden content can also be copied and pasted into other applications by using the Text Selection tool.
How can I copy images from Octavo Editions?
You can select and copy any portion of an image from an Octavo digital book and then paste it into other applications, using the Adobe Reader’s toolset. More information on Adobe Reader’s features can be found on Adobe’s web site. The results will vary depending on the applications you paste into and the resolution of the current view you copy from. This technique is for non-professional uses, such as illustrating a personal document.
