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.
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.
