How do I copy part of a PDF file to the Clipboard?


To copy selected data onto the clipboard, please use the "Copy" command from the Edit menu. Please note that copying data to the clipboard replaces previously stored content.





CTRL + C (Icon-Windows.png,Icon-Linux.png), COMMAND + C (Icon-Apple.png)


Though Able2Extract will, by default, convert your copied selection to Text, RTF, and CSV formats, you can specify the required format for your copied text. To do so, go to "View -> Conversion Options...". In Conversion Options dialog go to the General Tab and under the Clipboard Options section, check or uncheck to specify the output format for your copied content. Choosing a single output format from this section will generate faster processing times.

Also, please note that this command is unavailable unless there is data currently selected. So, in order to copy data to the clipboard, please follow these steps:

  1. Open your PDF file in Able2Extract and select the desired data.
  2. Then use the "Copy" command from the Edit menu.
  3. In your specified format’s native application (eg. Windows Notepad, WordPad, Excel), use the "Paste" command to paste your selected content.
