WHen they created that document they disabled that option - Check to see if the select text option ( a T with a dashed line square to the lower left of the T ) is greyed out - if not you can click that and select the text you want by clicking and dragging - CTRL C , then CTRL V in a program like Word. If not you are out of luck - they don't want it to be reproduced.

There is software out there that will do this for you. I'm trying to think of the name of the one I used once... It is something like "printscreen". Do a search and I beleive the download is free to try. Download it and it will solve your problems.

Hi M-coon

Thanks for the help.

I downloaded the Printscreen. I can't print more than a page because the mouse does not allow me to drug more than a page. Is there a way to print multiple pages.

No - You will have to do them one at a time... But if it is the only way, you will just have to do it.
